Business Licence of the Salvation Army (FOI)

Business Licence of the Salvation Army (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 21 August 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Please I would like to know all the information in regards the business licence for the Salvation Army to operate in the Isle of Jersey. I would like to see the approved licence and which basis the licence was approved.


The licence was granted in line with Control of Housing and Work (Jersey) Law 2012. The following factors are considered when considering granting a business licence. These are taken directly from article 26 (9) of the Control of housing and Work (Jersey) Law 2012:
(9)     In determining whether to grant a licence, the Minister shall have particular regard to –
         (a)     preserving and maximising the benefits of Jersey’s resources;
         (b)     promoting a balanced and prosperous economy;
         (c)     protecting the integrity and reputation of Jersey in commercial and financial matters;
         (d)     any relevant policies of the States of Jersey;
         (e)     whether such a grant would be in the public interest; and
         (f)      in the case of a hawker’s licence, whether the applicant is a fit and proper person.

The Licence was granted for the carrying out of a charitable undertaking, which was deemed to be in the public interest under 9 (e) of the above law.

A copy of the licence is available at the following link:

Individual names and reference numbers have been redacted for confidentiality reasons under Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.

Article applied

Article 25      Personal information

(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
(2)     Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a)     it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
(b)     its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
(3)     In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
