FAS director: Ease us!
That’s the plea from Al Gilkes, one of the promoters of the Digicel Barbados Reggae Festival to the Government at the Press launch yesterday at Kensington Oval.
He is asking for ease on three points: reduction in the 17.5 per cent VAT, the withholding tax of 25 per cent and on “behalf of all the promoters” a reduction in taxes on airline tickets for regional travel.
Now in its 11th year of staging, the festival is faced with many challenges but the former chairman of the National Cultural Foundation calls himself a risk taker and therefore the show must go on. (NS)
