Late fees capped for annual returns
In light of the potential challenges currently facing local companies, we have taken the decision to waive the incremental monthly late fees for all outstanding annual returns.
If you own a Jersey business and you still need to submit your annual return or administration fee, you will now only incur a one-off late fee of £55 for filing between now and the end of year.
We did increase our annual return fees this year, introducing late fees of between £55 and £550 for any companies that missed the 29 February deadline and file from 1 March. Due to the unprecedented circumstances posed by the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and to help local businesses, we are capping late fees at £55 until next year.
So far we have received 93% of all annual returns, of which 9% are paper and yet to be processed. Our Registry team is endeavouring to process all returns quickly, however we would ask business owners to be patient as we adapt to changing operations and priorities.
You can still get a certificate of good standing regardless of whether we still need to process your return.
