Policy on tax rulings

Revenue Jersey's policy on tax rulings

In June 2016 Jersey signed up as an associate of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative.

From 1 April 2017 Jersey is required to spontaneously exchange details of certain tax rulings with tax authorities of other jurisdictions potentially affected by the ruling.

As a consequence Revenue Jersey has reviewed its policy regarding the granting of tax rulings.

The policy:

  • defines a tax ruling and explains the difference between a specific tax ruling and a general tax ruling
  • makes clear that from the date of this revised policy Revenue Jersey will no longer provide clearance letters where there are no genuine points of uncertainty with regard to the application of the Income Tax Law
  • explains how to request a specific tax ruling
  • explains the effect of a specific tax ruling on the taxpayer
  • outlines the circumstances in which a specific tax ruling will be spontaneously exchanged with another jurisdiction
  • clarifies the position with regard to tax rulings made by the Taxes Office between 1 January 2012 and 31 March 2017 (historical rulings)
Request for a specific tax ruling should be emailed for the attention of the Assistant Comptroller with ‘Tax Ruling’ in the subject header.
