Revenue Jersey Statistics

​Statistical information produced by Revenue Jersey.

Customer service in numbers

Revenue Jersey is managing an unusually high volume of work arising from its transformation programme, from supporting taxpayers through the COVID-19 pandemic and from recent changes in tax legislation.

Revenue Jersey's service levels need to be improve. This information indicates current trends for key services.

The Treasury Minister is providing further resources to help improve services and Revenue Jersey aims to publish new service standards when work volumes have returned to normal levels.

Turnaround times

Revenue Jersey aims to assess 80% of returns within 30 days of receipt until 30 April, after which the increasing numbers of returns​ received take longer to assess.

Customers can expect to wait around 60 working days for tax assessments from May to December.

Tax returns filed electronically will normally be assessed more quickly, especially where minimal intervention is required by Revenue Officers.

A proportion of tax returns will always take longer to assess where returns are incomplete or additional enquiries need to be made.





Correspondence

Revenue Jersey is currently responding to around 80% of e-mails within 28 working days of receipt. The length of time taken will vary according to the complexity of the enquiry. 

  • the department normally receives between 500 and 800 emails weekly
  • during 2020 (principally because of the Covid-19 Pandemic) and to date, email volumes routinely exceeded 1,200 weekly
  • taxpayer confidentiality issues can limit the scope to respond to taxpayers by email, in that event, a letter would be written
  • Revenue Jersey endeavours to prioritise enquiries involving financial distress
  • multiple emails from the same individual about the same issue can delay response times due to the need to link correspondence

Revenue Jersey continues to encourage people to self serve on the website (where that is possible) and otherwise ideally to contact them by telephone where tax officers aim to provide a "once and done" service, resolving any issue at that first point of contact.
