IMPORTATION OF CHARITABLE ITEMS
The Charities Act implemented by the Charities Authority and the Registrar of Charities took effect on December 24, 2013. All entities seeking to be certified as a charitable institution, or to obtain benefits under the Charities Act, must first be registered with the Department of Cooperatives and Friendly Societies (DCFS). Information on registration requirements and procedure can be obtained from the DCFS’s website at www.dcfsjamaica.org.
