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. The Limited liability companies are the most popular business structure, however, prior consultation should be made to understand whether incorporating this would be the appropriate step for your business.
