A Clearance Letter is a document that we issue to a company or an individual that verifies and declares the status of that contributor's contribution payments, Annual Returns submissions and arrears (if any). It is a pre-requisite for obtaining a Tax Compliance Certificate (TCC) from the Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ).
A TCC is a document that is issued as proof that payments of tax liabilities and wage-related statutory deductions are up-to-date. It is usually needed for obtaining certain licenses, citizenship, work permits, security firm registration, tendering for certain contracts and for importation. For more detailed TCC information visit the TAJ’s website.
To obtain a Clearance Letter companies should visit one of our locations and speak with a Compliance Officer.
