Chamber is the largest employer representative body in the Island, a vibrant association of members from all business sectors who are dedicated to the promotion of trade, commerce and the general prosperity of Jersey.
In addition to our organised Chamber events we also keep track of all business related local events and publish those organised by our members.
The only relief available for commercial samples are where the item is sent as a sample, and the item cannot actually be used as anything other than a ‘sample’ – for example, a coat with a large hole cut in it so that it cannot actually be sold & used as a coat, or a ‘dud’ iphone with no circuit board inside.
More information here: HMRC Public Notice 367
These conditions are very strict, as this relief has been subject to abuse – In this case we do not think that it will be feasible/workable to send these items via the Scheme and have Jersey C&I decide on the eligibility to the relief. In this case the UK Border Force should process items claiming to be ‘Trade Samples’ at the Office of Exchange.
