Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) EXECUTIVE MEETS WITH CHRIS SINCKLER, FINANCE MINISTER TO SPEAK ON SOLID WASTE TAX
Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler met with the new executive of the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) on Monday in what both sides hoped would be the first of many such sessions.
The wide-ranging discussions covered topics such as the Municipal Solid Waste Tax, the Value Added Tax, public transportation and health.
While explaining that offsetting monies owed for goods and services against taxes due might call for legislative change, the Minister promised to discuss the Chamber’s proposals with senior officers in his Ministry and other related government departments to see if and how they could be implemented.
Mr. Sinckler promised the business representatives that as the BRA settled into carrying out its mandate, they could expect to receive their VAT refunds in a timelier manner.
