Gov’t may soften two per cent forex tax

In the first sign of Government’s softening of the two per cent levy on foreign exchange transactions, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart this evening said that his administration was prepared to make “minor adjustments” to the controversial tax.

Speaking to reporters during his walk-through of BMEX 2017,  Stuart noted that in keeping with the 2017-2018 Budget, the new levy was due to take effect in just under a month from now on  July 1, which he said gives concerned sectors time to react.

In fact, the Prime Minister said the July 1 implementation date was “deliberate because we wanted to hear what people thought might be some of the challenges they were likely to face as a result of it.

“So we still have time to listen and to make any minor adjustments that need to be made to facilitate those persons who will be affected by the two per cent commission,” he said.

Delivering the Budget on Tuesday, Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler announced that “in an effort to signal the need to reduce the demand for consumption goods, I propose that, effective July 1, a broad-based foreign exchange commission be charged on all sales of foreign currency at a rate of two per cent.

“This will extend to, inter alia, all wire transfers, credit card transactions, and over the counter sale of foreign currencies,” he explained at the time.

Sinckler also said the measure was  expected to raise an estimated $52.5 million over the remainder of the current financial year and $140 million over a full financial year.

Standing amid the exhibition booths mounted by local manufacturers this evening, Stuart said “the whole rationale of the imposition of the two per cent commission is to get people to focus on Barbados, and on supporting Barbadian workers and Barbadian businesses, rather than continuing to use Barbados’ foreign exchange to support manufacturers in other parts of the world”.

However, he said in imposing the tax, his administration recognizes that in some instances the inputs of manufacturers have to come from abroad, so “account will be taken of that because you don’t want to frustrate people’s spirit of innovation, spirit of entrepreneurship by making access to inputs burdensome”.

Stuart said that Barbadians had been talking for a long time about earning foreign exchange, and while he conceded that there was nothing wrong with that, he stressed that “we’ve spent too little time concentrating on saving foreign exchange”.

Therefore, in his estimation, the two per cent imposition was “another way of disciplining the consumer in Barbados”.

Nonetheless,  Stuart said citizens were still free to carry out foreign exchange transactions.

“Nobody is going to stop nobody from  importing or using foreign exchange to support businesses overseas.

“All we are saying is if that is what you prefer to do, this little penalty comes along with it, because it cannot be that Barbados’ future development will rest on the extent to which we support businesses elsewhere rather than supporting our own here in Barbados,” the Prime Minister stressed.

When I hear blacks insulting each other’s appearance it shows that they don’t love themselves/blackness. Just the other day they were up in arms about the monkey nuts bar, so it seems that blacks are comfortable insulting each other but have problems when whites do it. Smh

And you can bet he doesn’t eat ground provisions and meats and fish wholey and soley grown, raised or caught here.

    All governments in this country have adjusted legislation after it’s been passed. Even the employers are calling for the new employment rights legislation to be adjusted. After the fact thought is human nature. We make solid decisions in our homes then to have to change it, because we couldn’t see the effects before. So the PM is right, manufacturing imports have to be protected, but generally our taste for foreign goods have gotten the better of us over the years, to the point where we even import items we can get here easily. We don’t consider for the jobs of our brothers, neighbors, or even ourselves. So the government is right for imposing the tax on foreign exchange leaving the country. The tow ways to improve our foreign exchange account is to earn more, or spend less. It’s that simple.

If a man can believe that he can believe anything. (Laughter.) We Free-traders say it is not true.

    The Leader of the Opposition says in Today’s Sunday Sun that she will roll back the National Social Responsibility Levy. She didn’t say that she would scrap the levy. Since when has she been supportive of the levy in any form or fashion? Did she vote against it in last year’s Budgetary Proposals? How can someone roll back something that he/she opposed previously? She also agreeing with Owen Arthur that the IMF route would be the better option. Oh Lord Have His Mercy this bright Sunday morning, why didn’t she use the economic advice given to her by her economic advisers on Wednesday during her three hours of wuking up and putting her hands in the air like Red Plastic Bag? This is an admission that her attempt to reply to the budget on Wednesday poor rakey. The BLP needs a new leader to take them into the next elections. It isn’t too late. The obvious choice is young Ryan Straughn. And Owen, it isn’t too late for you to change your mind about retiring from active politics. You can either run as an Independent or for one of the smaller Parties.

    Where are the persons who have to police and pursue these tax

    This from the leader of a government which has turned its back on agriculture, and is forcing Barbadians to spend millions on imported food stuff. We have a Macaroni Boat, a Ramen Boat, a Corn Curl Boat and a J-uc and Pepsi Boat, among others.
    Lets wait and see if at Christmas time whether this same government will give approval to import ”Christmas trees” from Canada, instead of improvising, and using locally grown Estwick trees ( useless cultivated wild River Tamarind)

Their great great grandmothers did not allow the white man to use them as sexual convenience i.e screw them in the dark of night for an extra handful of sugar and then enslave them during the day. How the hell you little moon donkeys think you were born with fair skins and kinky hair? Regretfully that was the thinking of Sir Grantley Adams who couldn’t find a black woman like himself to marry.

        The other nations started the mental destruction of this people and then left them to finish the rest of the destruction among themselves. Them so destroyed that they are now willingly giving themselves for usury both in the bedroom and out for a couple of dollars. What a jokers paradise.

    In other words wunnuh moon donkeys, wunnuh have rich white families in Barbados who would shoot wunnuh if wunnuh ever set foot on their properties. That is not the case with big nose Straujghn, Malik-face Mascoll or Pinocchio Stuart.

    Loren za or Laurie or whatever is your name, go and read the report on cases of HIV on the island. You are a same-sex advocate. Twice I engaged you in a dialogue recently and you ended up on both occasions putting your foot in your mouth. . I prefer to be branded a DLP yardfowl than a BLP transvestite . You just see BLP and start cussing without reading the subject matter. Yes, I love attacking Mia but in this column, I am addressing the ignorant moon donkeys , who don’t know anything about their ancestry and resort to derogatory remarks about big nose Stuart. I reminded them that Straughn has a big nose and Mascoll has a face like Malik according to your leader. Presumably you are one of the hate mongers in the BLP who ran big nose Don Blackman from the Party because he stood up the half white skin Tom Adams. Wunnuh real ignorant fuh true. Once before I would have told you to get off muh back but you might think that I am ”one of you” if I tell you so now.

    Laurie Lornza, I was discussing black BLP bloggers disowning their black ancestors. Respond in kind. Don’t dodge the topic and switch from Stuart big nose to Stuart big car. Man or woman or whatever you are, you seem to like putting your foot in your mouth. Do you have two feet? Please put the other foot in the orifice located at the lower part of your body.
