    Gov't Tables Bill To Exempt Some Foreigners From Paying Income Tax


    Published: Tuesday September 18, 2012 | 4:12 pmComments 0
    Daraine Luton, Senior Staff Reporter

    The Government has tabled a bill in Parliament which seeks to exempt persons, who are not residents of Jamaica and who perform prescribed operations in the country, from the payment of income tax.

    The move to amend the Income Tax Act is part of the Government's move to grow foreign investment in Jamaica.

    "It is hoped that, by facilitating the establishment of group head office companies in Jamaica, other companies will realise the economic benefits, including increased foreign investments, access of alternative capital providers, new markets and the creation of new jobs," the Memorandum of Objects and Reasons of the bill states.

    The bill, which was laid today, outlines the activities which a company or other corporate body that operates in Jamaica must perform to qualify for group head office status.

    The activities outlined are the supervision, management or monitoring or the operations of the company; accounting, data processing, engineering and other technical support; and centralised treasury management and similar funding activities.

        the roads, airports and amenities 'these people' will be using don't belong to Jamaica...the road tolls go to who build di road...the airport run by outsiders so dere money follow dem home...n the hotels ,well we done know....but to correct a misthinking, this is for investors, not tourists...so we will become a tax haven where people have an office somewhere but no real work or employment done...ships will fly Jamaican flags because dem is registered in Jamaica but that is all...the list is long as to the breaks....it will do nothing to the fact that Jamaica's debt repayment is currently 137% of Ja's GDP

              we owe way more that we bring in

              GDP is not revenue

              Take a look at the budget. the Total national debt is about 4 ties the Gov revenue.

              a more important figure is the budget deficit and the portion of the budget that is used to service debt.

              the US national debt is getting close the the same ratio as Jamaica

                  my definition of what is revenue and your are quite different.

                  to me revenue is what the government take into it's coffers to fix road and support schools and hospitals etc. and since gov have a hard time collecting taxes GDP and revenue is jus loosely related.

                      revenue is derived if is taxable not all is taxable

                      since i hear that tax compliance in jamaica is in the 50 % range and gov revenue is a bit under 4 billion i would estimate that the taxable portion of GDP is around 7.5 billion or just about half of the reported GDP
