BCCI appeals for tax ease
REDUCE THE BURDENSOME TAXES on businesses in 2016 so that they can grow.
This is the private sector’s plea to government as businesses complain they continue to reel under the pressure of what senior vice president of the Barbados Chamber of Commerce & Industry (BCCI) Ed Clarke described Wednesday as “excessive taxes”.
He made his appeal during the BCCI’s first meeting for the year at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, with Prime Minister Freundel Stuart sitting at the head table.
“Our businesses continue to be burdened by what we consider to be excessive taxes and we are hopeful that some reduction will be forthcoming from the Minister of Finance in 2016,” he said.
