Obtaining a Clearance Letter/TCC

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 at - http://www.jamaicatax-online.gov.jm/tax_compliance.html .

To obtain a Clearance Letter companies should visit one of our locations and speak with a Compliance Officer.
