Incorporate a company
You can incorporate a company via myRegistry.
Paper forms are no longer required for a company incorporation, however you will still need to upload a copy of your memorandum and articles.
For help on how to do this visit our incorporate a company page.
If your company is going to employ at least one person, including the business owner, for more than 8 hours per week, on average, you will also need a business licence issued by the Government of Jersey. You should apply for this once your certificate of incorporation is issued.

File your public company accounts
The nominated person of the company can submit the public company accounts via myRegistry.
For a Jersey public company, you need to file your audited accounts with the Registry within seven months of your financial year-end.
We recognise that the disruption caused by Coronavirus (COVID-19) may mean that your business is unable to fulfil this legal requirement.
Apply for an extension
If your company cannot meet the deadline for filing your audited accounts, you can apply for an extension.
You will need to do this no later than one month before the end of the seven-month filing period after your company’s year-end.
You will need to complete the following form, explaining how the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has impacted your business and why you cannot file your audited accounts on time. You can submit this form via myRegistry using the 'other registry correspondence' option under 'form uploader'.
Company auditor's report and accounts:
Depending on your circumstances, we will either:
- Extend the filing period by setting a final deadline
- Request further information
- Advise you that we are not satisfied with your reasons for the late filing and therefore not grant an extension
For more information on the impact of Covid-19 on your ability to file your company auditor's report and accounts, visit our Information for Registry users - Covid-19 Impacts page.
