The regulations for setting up a business vary according to the type and structure of the company. Therefore, it is important to decide beforehand whether you want to start a business as a sole trader, as part of a group or as a limited company. If you are a sole trader or have a partnership, you have to first acquire a business licence from the Jersey Regulation of Undertakings office. This licence is issued after the application is reviewed by three departments: Jersey Financial Services Commission, Social Security Department and Taxes Office.
