Private sector ‘concerned’ about indebtedness to government

first_img Share LocalNews Private sector ‘concerned’ about indebtedness to government by: – July 11, 2013 Share Tweet 26 Views   one commentcenter_img Sharing is caring! Share Chairman of the Dominica Business Forum, Stewart ParisThe private sector, through the Dominica Business Forum, has expressed concern regarding its indebtedness to government.According to general statistics from the Financial Secretary, the private sector is indebted to Government in unpaid taxes, a sum of EC$106,000,000 (one hundred and six million dollars).This was revealed during a pre-budget consultation held between the Cabinet and members of the private sector on 27th June.“The private sector is concerned about this indebtedness and wishes to publicly impress upon its citizenry that all efforts must be made to pay taxes owed to the Government,” the private sector said in a news release. The release further stated that details were not available during the pre-budget consultation, relating to the time period in respect of which the taxes became due, the time period in respect of which the taxes were owed, whether the sum incorporated any interest accumulated, or if these business are currently still in existence. “We do not know if it is owed by businesses who are operating and are not compliant, we do not know if some of the taxes owed are by business who no longer operate, we really do not know the details,” chairman of the Dominica Business Forum, Stewart Paris said.The Dominica Business Forum which was launched last year represents the interest of the Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce, the Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association, the Dominica Manufacturer’s Association and the Dominica Employer’s Federation.He noted that it is also a matter of concern to him that the private sector owes the government more than one hundred million dollars and encouraged all private sector companies to pay their taxes.However, Mr Paris indicated that in order for businesses to pay their taxes, they must be able to earn the money. “If their business is not doing very well, they cannot earn the money to pay the taxes”.He is hopeful that the 2013/2014 national budget that “will introduce some kind of element that will help all of us and make it easier for us to do business and pay our taxes”. Meanwhile, according to the release, Prime Minister and Minister of Finance indicated to the private sector that his government is willing to develop payment plans, including concessions on interest and penalties for offending businesses which might approach them in this regard, if they are serious about settling their debts.
