The Department has a broad range of responsibilities. At the highest level these can be categorised as advising the States on matters relating to the allocation and administration of all States resources, the regulation and control of States financial affairs, the raising of States income, the systems for the assessment and collection of income tax, dwellings profits tax (currently suspended) and tax on real property.
There are six Sections that comprise the Treasury & Resources Department which are responsible for the delivery of the policy priorities established by the Department's political Board* and for carrying out all of the necessary day-to-day work of the Department.
A brief synopsis of each Section follows, with a more detailed overview available on the right hand side of this page.
The teams within the Central Services portfolio consist of the States' 'Shared Transactional Service Centre', located at Sir Charles Frossard House and known as 'The HUB' (which provides core business support services to all States departments), and the Guernsey Digimap Service, located at the Old Tobacco Factory (which manages the provision of the States digital map).
