DataTorque drills into software demand with Jersey tax office deal

First phase of work on schedule and close to completion

DataTorque has unveiled a working partnership with the Jersey Taxes Office, marking the software specialists first move into the lucrative European market.

The New Zealand-based technology business has been working with the department since October 2017, delivering the first phase of a programme designed to modernise the island’s revenue collection technology systems.

Located within the Channel Islands between England and France, Jersey is a self-governing dependency of the UK, housing more than 100,000 residents.

Despite close ties with the UK, the island operates as an autonomous region, with responsibility for its own independent legal, administrative and fiscal systems.

“DataTorque’s ‘off the shelf’ tax software was selected following an international tender, and will simplify the process of filling in tax returns for many,” Jersey comptroller of taxes, Richard Summersgill, said. “It will also collect social security contributions.”

Summersgill said the first phase of the work is on schedule and close to completion.

“We are on track for all staff to be using the new system from 2019 and for many to be able to file online and receive automatic assessments in 2020,” he added.

Jersey is DataTorque’s first customer in Europe, extending the provider’s client base from Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.

“We are proud to have secured this important contract for the States of Jersey and are working to assist the transformation team to build user-friendly, customer-centred services for its population,” DataTorque managing director, Bill Chatwin, added.

“We are very excited to have a European presence, and a team located full-time in Jersey.”

According to Chatwin, the partnership with the States of Jersey highlights the capability of DataTorque’s RMS application and specialist tax reform consultancy services, tailored to meet the demands of a wide range of revenue jurisdictions globally.

“We are really enjoying working with the States of Jersey team whose collaborative, professional approach has helped us quickly settle into a great working relationship with them,” he added.

Founded in 1994, DataTorque provides taxation, transport and customs systems to governments in the Pacific, Africa, The Americas and Europe.
