VAT ease unfair, says DLP
President of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Verla De Peiza is calling for the Mia Mottley administration to live up to its word, and be more transparent and forthcoming with the public.
De Peiza wants Government to reveal who would be the “lucky” recipients of VAT waivers while other members of the public were being burdened with more taxes and increased bus fares.
“How else is any fair-minded person to classify the most recent action by this Barbados Labour Party (BLP) administration to unilaterally waive potentially hundreds of millions of dollars in VAT owed predominantly by certain businesses in Barbados, while at the same time punishing ordinary citizens in the country with increased bus fare, excruciating land taxes, and new sewerage, petroleum and health taxes/levies?” the DLP leader asked in a press statement released yesterday.
