Authored by States of Jersey and published on 14 November 2018.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
From the time that the States of Jersey Development Company (SoJDC) was formed, can you tell me, for each year of SoJDC's existence to the current date, exactly how much money, in each calendar year, has been transferred to the States Treasury from the profits made by the SoJDC. I appreciate that SoJDC does not fall within the FOI law but the Treasury does.
Dividends paid by the States of Jersey Development Company (SoJDC) to its sole shareholder, the States of Jersey, are declared in SoJDC’s annual report and accounts.
Each annual report is published on the States Assembly website:
