Increasing of the annual fee - how to open a company in Jersey?
Jersey is another self-governing state that is known for its tax haven status and has discussed a special association with the EEC that recognizes, preserves and guarantees financial autonomy.
Previously, it was possible to open a company in Jersey with state duties of 1,285 USD per year. Now, due to a change in legislation, the commission proposes to increase government duties to $ 1,500, adding a discrete collection of $ 128. This applies to auditors registered in Jersey.
This proposed change will take effect early next year. What is the reason for raising the cost? The situation is in inflation.
Inflation increased in 2016 in Jersey by 1.5% - although there was a significant decline in prices for diesel, gasoline and fuel for domestic heating.
Now the cost of living in Jersey is rising with inflation in March 2017 by 2.9%, which is the largest annual increase of nearly five years and the islanders will feel this when visiting supermarkets.
The report, published by the Department of Statistics of the State of Jersey, raised inflation in the price of food, the cost of automotive goods, personal services, and fuel and light expenses.
In addition to an annual increase of 2.9%, the RPI index increased by 1.8% between December 2016 and March 2017 - this is the highest quarterly increase since June 2011, when GST was increased from 3% to 5%
