Common Reporting Standard - Jersey announce relaxation of fines and penalties.
On 20 June 2017, the Taxes Office in Jersey announced that the reporting deadline for the submission of the 2016 reports relating to the Common Reporting Standard (“CRS”) would remain at 30 June 2017. However, the Taxes Office will not consider applying enforcement measures (including the consideration of the imposition of fines and/or penalties) against any Jersey Financial Institution who successfully complies with the reporting procedures by 31 July 2017.
It is important to note that the above relaxation does not apply in respect of reports submitted under US FATCA or UK FATCA (CDOT).
