FLOW preparing for cell tax
FLOW Barbados is working to meet the January 1, 2016 implementation date for the 22 per cent value added tax on cellular phone use.
Managing director of FLOW Barbados Niall Sheehy said the company was looking to have dialogue with the Ministry of Finance around the matter but there were also some technical things that needed to be implemented from their end.
Sheehy, who spoke to media on Wednesday night from the Fusion Rooftop Restaurant at Lime Grove where FLOW launched its Let Christmas Flow promotion, also said the company did not anticipate that it would lose customers as a result of the tax.
However, he said the challenge would be that customers would be mindful of what and how they spend.
“People will look for alternative ways to communicate; more cost effective ways and we are seeing that every day,” Sheehy said. (LK)
