Interesting notice in the Amandala newspaper of November 27, 2016.

All persons applying to register a new business, or operating a new business but not registered, any changes in the ownership of your business you must apply in writing to get a letter of compliance from the Department of General Sales Tax prior to visiting the Companies Registry.

Interesting to say the least. I will leave it there.

The PM is pushing GST to rake more in. How they do this will be interesting.

Too many out there not paying "their fair share" I don't have a problem with that. Many years ago I was in the City in line at GST and a very large company that I knew well was there as well. I had a chance to glance at the return and I was appalled at what the form said. Sadly it has been the norm for years why pay in to "both" governments that utilize the money supposedly unwisely.

t42 The bulk of the merchant aren't even registered, pay nothing and still charge GST. I'm sorry to sound like a broken record but the lack of enforcement is like a national theme.

Elbert is 100% correct I paid someone GST, then found out they were not registered for GST. I tried to claim the money back, but even the GST Head Office in Belize City did not want to know. That was years ago. I still do not believe things have change for the better.
