ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, Thursday, September 22nd, 2016: The Inland Revenue Division (IRD) is currently engaging a wide cross section of taxpayers, to discuss the recently implemented Tax Administration Act and to obtain feedback from taxpayers on its Draft Compliance Strategy.
IRD’s Draft Compliance Strategy is intended to be implemented early 2017.
Sessions have been held recently with the Accounting Association, members of the Chamber of Commerce (Private Sector) and Insurance companies. Other sessions are being planned for a wide cross section of stakeholder groups, including those in Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
The Tax Administration Act, 2016 came into effect on May 1st 2016. The Act harmonises and simplifies the operations of tax administration and the procedures of Grenada’s Tax Laws.
