  • 2006: The Jamaican Tax Administration Act is amended to establish a Transfer Pricing Unit within the tax authority to manage transfer pricing issues.
  • 2011: The Jamaican government establishes a Transfer Pricing Committee to provide guidance and recommendations on transfer pricing issues.
  • 2014: The Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) issued Transfer Pricing Guidelines to provide guidance on the application of transfer pricing rules in Jamaica.

The Schedule 8 form for Connected Persons has been included in the Jamaican tax regulations since the 2015/2016 fiscal year.

This means that taxpayers who have engaged in transactions with connected persons during the tax year must file the Schedule 8 form for Connected Persons along with their annual income tax return starting from the 2015/2016 fiscal year.

It is important to note that failure to file the Schedule 8 form for Connected Persons, or filing an incomplete or inaccurate form, can result in penalties and additional taxes in Jamaica.

Regarding the Local File and Master File, the due date in Jamaica is not specificall provided for in the country’s tax legislation or regulations. However, multinational corporations that conduct business in Jamaica are required to maintain transfer pricing documentation, including a Local File, in accordance with local transfer pricing rules.
