However, this information is exempt under Article 36 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 and cannot be released. See explanation below.

Exemption applied

Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011

Article 36 - Information intended for future publication 

Information is qualified exempt information if, at the time when the request for the information is made, the information is being held by a public authority with a view to its being published within 12 weeks of the date of the request.

Justification for exemption

The Taxes Office is currently carrying out a post-implementation review of the High Value Residents regime which will be presented to the States Assembly alongside the budget. 

The review will contain data on which conclusions and any proposals to Ministers for change will have been based.

Having considered the public interest, the public authority's decision is to withhold the information.
