The charity register contains key information about each charity and, with some limited exceptions, is fully open to public inspection so that people can if they wish understand more about the purposes, finances and public benefit delivery of the charities that they wish to support.

The online registration process for the Jersey charity register opened for business on the 1st May 2018. It is important to note that there were no impacts on tax reliefs enjoyed by any prior tax-exempt entity in the short term provided that it applied for registration by the end of 2018 even if that registration was not determined by the end of 2020. Subject to that, such an organisation’s continuing entitlement to all the tax reliefs depended upon whether or not it had successfully become a registered charity.
