Changes to the de minimis

The Minister for Treasury and Resources has announced that the reduction in the “de minimis” level of GST from £240 to £135 will come into effect from 1st October 2020. This means that any private individual ordering goods from outside Jersey will need to pay GST if their order costs more than £135. The full announcement made on can be read here along with a reminder of the changes which can be read here.

Please note this “de minimis” level does not apply where goods are imported for business purposes.
