Jersey registry closing to prepare for switchover to myRegistry
Chris Hamblin, Editor, London, 17 February 2021
The Jersey Financial Services Commission's now-fully-digital registry, which holds and updates nine registers of Jersey companies, business names, foundations, partnerships, security interests etc, is being augmented by myRegistry, a new customer account. Systems will go down on Friday 19 February in preparation.
The introduction of myRegistry ought to make it easier for firms to manage the information that they send to the regulator. It also coincides with new legislation recently passed by the Government of Jersey under the Financial Services (Disclosure and Provision of Information) (Jersey) Law 2020. The JFSC is giving firms access to myRegistry in phases and by business type.
After close of business on Thursday 18 February, firms will no longer have access to the Easy Company Registry. If they have any urgent or fast-track applications, they will need to submit these before then.
The regulator is contacting all trust company and fund service businesses to tell them that it will set them up with myRegistry accounts during the week commencing Monday 22 February.
For all other local businesses, it will share a link on its web pages that week, so that they can access myRegistry and set up their own accounts.
The JFSC has extended the deadline for the annual confirmation statement. Firms now have until 30 June to confirm that their information is accurate and up-to-date.
