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.
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 Tax Administration Jamaica’s website at- http://www.jamaicatax-online.gov.jm/tax_compliance.html.
To obtain a Clearance Letter employed persons should visit one of our locations and speak with a Compliance Officer and submit the following -

- NIS Card**
- Last three (3) pay slips or current job letter
- Valid Identification (Driver's license, National/Voter's ID, Passport)

* Where the NIS card is not available, if pay slips carry this number we will use in lieu. The NIS Clearance Letter can also be used.
