Sivers has promised that the new BRA will bring “improved governance and structure to tax administration” in Barbados and she has singled out the importance of taxation as “a vehicle to national development“.

This luncheon seminar will offer attendees the opportunity to learn more about the new BRA, how it plans to carry out its mandate, and how this will impact on the way you do business, when you attend this month’s luncheon seminar.

Sivers was appointed as this island’s first female Accountant General in June 1999 and was assigned to act as Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance in 2010. She subsequently went on to the Special Projects Unit and was responsible for merging Government’s four major tax collecting agencies into the BRA.
