Charitable organisations that wish to benefit from tax exemptions or other statutory relief must register with the relevant authority in order to access such benefit.
This was stated by Minister of Justice, Senator the Hon. Senator Mark Golding, in the Senate on Thursday, November 28, in response to a comment by Opposition Senator, Alexander Williams, during debate on the Charities Act 2013. The Bill, which was passed, provides for the regulation of all charitable bodies intending to, or are already operating in Jamaica.

A key part of the Extended Fund Facility between Jamaica and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the legislation makes provision for the establishment of a comprehensive legal and institutional framework and will facilitate the registration, regulation, administration and governance of the private voluntary sector operating in Jamaica.
