Guernsey online tax returns to be default

Guernsey States has agreed a move to make online, rather than paper, tax returns the standard for individuals in the island.

It means online returns will be the default option, although paper returns will be available on request.

Treasury and Resources Minister Gavin St Pier said about 40,000 paper tax returns were sent out annually.

He said online filing would save money, was more environmentally friendly and more efficient.

The States also agreed companies would be expected to file tax returns online, with exceptions allowed to submit paper forms at the discretion of the Income Tax director.
