Tax amnesty to end on February 15

The Barbados Revenue Authority is reminding all taxpayers that the Tax Amnesty Programme will end on Wednesday, February 15.

The programme is in respect of the following taxes where 100 per cent of penalty and interest is waived: Income Tax, Corporation Tax, PAYE, Value Added Tax and Land Tax.

In August 2016, Finance Minister Chris Sinckler announced that Government would offer the tax amnesty from September 15, 2016 through to February 15, 2017 for taxpayers who owe outstanding value added tax (VAT), income tax and land tax.

Sinckler said taxpayers would have to pay the outstanding principal on or before the deadline to benefit from the amnesty.

    I would like an extension too. Did not get back any refunds to settle my liabilities. There is so much that a small business owner can take! Years of outstanding VAT refunds destroy your cash flow. Can hardly pay yourself a salary, far less pay increased taxation… most allowances taken. Feels like you are being punished for daring to want your own business.

    Took advantage of the amnesty last time then get a call from the debt section some month later telling me I owe. Went down there with receipts etc in hand only to find that their system not adjusted to record the blasted thing. Make it worse they can’t find the relevant paper work.

    I WOULD LIKE MY 2015 REFUND AND IF WUNNA CALL ME AGEN ABOUT DEBT I FILING HARASSMENT CHARGES. GET WUNNA ACT TOGETHER.

    Minister Inniss thinks customs will be more effective under BRA. He living under a rock?
