2. Summary

Jersey, formally the Bailiwick of Jersey, is a self-governing island republic off the coast of northwestern France. It is the biggest of the Channel Islands, located 14 miles (23 kilometers) from Normandy's Cotentin Peninsula. The Bailiwick of Jersey includes the main island of Jersey as well as other uninhabited islets and rocks such as Les Dirouilles, Les Écréhous, Les Minquiers, and Les Pierres de Lecq.

Jersey belonged to the Duchy of Normandy, whose dukes became monarchs of England beginning in 1066. Jersey remained faithful to the English Crown after Normandy was lost by the monarchs of England in the 13th century, and the ducal title was transferred to France, albeit it never became part of the Kingdom of England.

Jersey is a self-governing parliamentary democracy governed by a constitutional monarchy, with its own financial, legal, and judicial institutions, as well as the ability to self-determine. The relationship between the island and the Crown differs from that of the other Crown Dependencies; the Lieutenant Governor represents the Queen there. Jersey is not a part of the United Kingdom and has its own international identity, yet the UK is legally responsible for its defense.

The island has a sizable financial services sector, which accounts for 40% of its GDP. The usage of English as the predominant language and the Pound sterling as the official currency demonstrates the island's British cultural influence. Driving on the left, access to British television and newspapers, a school curriculum comparable to that of England, and the popularity of British sports, notably cricket, are further cultural parallels. The island also has a significant Norman-French culture, as seen by Jèrriais, an old Norman language, and place names with French or Norman heritage. The island has strong cultural ties with the other islands in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Jersey and its inhabitants have been referred to as a country.

Hiring talented employees in a short span is not an easy task. Partnering with an Employer of Record (EOR) like Rivermate in Jersey is your best option, giving your organization enough time to focus on other aspects of international expansions like project management and inventory management.

5. Employment termination

There is no information about employment information for this country.

Termination process

To establish whether an employee's dismissal is fair or unfair, the employer must demonstrate that the reason for the dismissal (or, if more than one, the primary cause) is one that supports the dismissal, notably capability, qualifications, behaviour, and redundancy. Continuing to work would be illegal. Alternatively, there is a compelling commercial basis for the firing. If a dismissal is deemed to be reasonable, the employee is not entitled to a severance payment unless the dismissal is for cause of redundancy. If the employee was terminated unfairly, he or she may be entitled to a compensating reward.

Notice period

The following is the minimal notice period that must be given by the employer, unless the employee is on a fixed-term contract of employment and has worked for the employer for eight hours or more in any week. The notice period will be one week for employees who have worked for less than two years. The notice period is two weeks for employees who have worked for more than two years but less than three years. The notice period is three weeks for employees who have worked for more than three years but less than four years. The notice period is four weeks for employees who have worked for more than four years but less than five. The notice period is five weeks for employees who have worked for more than five but not more than six years. The notice period is six weeks for employees who have worked for more than six but not more than seven years. The notice period is seven weeks if you have worked for more than seven years but not more than eight. The notice period is eight weeks for employees who have worked for more than eight years but less than nine. The notice period is nine weeks for employees who have worked for more than nine years but less than ten. The notice period is ten weeks for employees who have worked for more than ten years but less than eleven years. The notice period is 11 weeks for employees who have worked for more than 11 years but less than 12 years. The notice period is 12 weeks for employees who have worked for more than 12 years.

For employees with fewer than five years of service, the minimum notice time is two weeks, while for those with more than five years of service, it is four weeks.

Although a contract of employment can call for a lengthier period of notice, notice periods cannot be less than the legal minimum. Whether or whether it is specified in the employment contract, the employee is always entitled to at least the statutory minimum notice time.

Probation period

The probationary period lasts for 4 weeks.

Severance pay

If a dismissal is deemed reasonable, the employee is not entitled to a severance payment unless the dismissal is for cause of redundancy. If the employee was terminated unfairly, he or she may be entitled to a compensatory award.

The Jersey Employment Tribunal's monetary awards are limited to up to 26 weeks' pay for an unfair dismissal finding, which accumulates on a sliding scale. Severance pay is up to four weeks' pay for employees with less than six months of service. Severance pay is equal to four weeks' wages for six to twelve months of continuous service. Severance pay is equivalent to eight weeks' pay for employees with more than 12 months but less than 24 months of service. Severance is equivalent to 12 weeks' pay for employees with more than 24 months but less than 36 months of service. Severance is equivalent to 16 weeks' pay for employees who have worked more than 36 months but less than 48 months. Severance is equivalent to 21 weeks' pay for employees with more than 48 months but less than 60 months of service. Severance pay is equivalent to 26 weeks' pay for employees with more than five years of service.

9. Taxes

There is no information about the taxes for this country.

Corporate tax

In general, resident corporations are taxed on their global revenue. Profits due to a permanent establishment (PE), such as a branch of a business, are taxed. Non-resident corporations must pay taxes on Jersey real estate revenue.

Companies are subject to income tax at the rates of 0%, 10%, or 20% on taxable income. The overall applicable rate is 0%; the 10% and 20% rates apply to certain companies/income streams as described in this section. The tax rate applies to the business as a whole, with the exception of Jersey-sourced real property revenue, which is taxed at 20% regardless of the real property holding company's classification.

The 20% tax rate applies to utility businesses headquartered in Jersey, such as telephone, gas, and electricity providers. Furthermore, revenue from Jersey real estate, such as rental income, property development earnings, and income from exploiting Jersey land (e.g. quarrying operations), is taxed at a rate of 20%. Companies engaged in oil imports and supply are also subject to a 20% tax.

Jersey financial services businesses are subject to a 10% tax rate. Large corporate merchants have also been subjected to the normal 20% income tax rate.

The 0% rate applies to all non-exempt businesses, such as financial services firms, big corporate merchants, or utility companies, as well as fund managers who do not possess any of the aforementioned licenses.

Individual income tax

Tax is levied at a rate of 20% on net income after allowances.

VAT, GST and sales tax

GST is charged at a regular rate of 5%. Companies that make taxable supplies worth more than GBP 300,000 per year must register for GST.
