PSC urges similar engagement with other delinquent companies

Posted on by

first_imgDDL, GRA tax settlementIn light of the recent $5 billion tax settlement between the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) and Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL), the Private Sector Commission (PSC) is urging that similar procedure be adopted with other delinquent companies.“From the point of view of the Private Sector Commission, we wish to urge that the Guyana Revenue Authority now engage other aggrieved companies to apply similar formulae to correct the distortions in the market place resulting from this action,” the Commission said in a statement on Friday.Furthermore, the PSC applauded GRA and DDL on the settlement and compromise over the long outstanding consumption and excise taxes. “We wish to congratulate the Company on the amicable resolution of this issue, which has been ongoing since 2002 – that is an achievement which took fourteen years and is also a credit to all concerned,” the brief statement added.Last week, DDL announced that it has reached an “amicable” settlement with GRA thus resolving the longstanding legal battle between the two, which arose out of a Consumption Tax assessment levied against DDL by former Commissioner General Khurshid Sattuar in January 2009 to the tune of $5,392,020,753.However, the legal battle dated back to 2002, when the local beverage giant raised a legal challenge against the GRA on the methodology adopted by the latter for the assessment of Consumption Tax.In February, 2005, the High Court found in favour of DDL. The GRA subsequently appealed that decision and on July 31, 2008, the Guyana Court of Appeal unanimously dismissed the GRA’s Appeal.But the following month, GRA commenced a new assessment, this time issuing a new claim, billing the company a crippling $5.392 billion. This was again challenged by DDL in 2009 and the High Court had issued an Order Nisi pending the hearing of the matter.“DDL and the GRA were able to recommence negotiations for a resolution of the methodology for a calculation of Consumption Tax (and its successor, Excise Tax), and have now been able to arrive at consensus to fully and finally settle all claims by the GRA and liability by DDL for both Consumption and Excise tax up to March 9, 2016 in the sum of $1,500,000,000. This sum is payable over 12 months. DDL, in good faith, very recently effected payment of $100,000,000 in compliance with the settlement terms,” a statement from the company on 12 April, 2016 stated.However, while the PSC has lauded the settlement, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has strongly condemned the transaction, calling it a “scandalous out of court settlement” that has cost the State billions of dollars in revenue.“The settlement sends the wrong message to the business community; that a company can unilaterally decide to stop paying taxes, while other companies comply with the law, take the matter to court and drag it out until a sympathetic government comes to power and settles its debts to the State,” the former Guyanese President stated.Jagdeo further outlined that the settlement has opened the door for other companies to seek refunds on taxes paid: “There have already been reports in the private sector of other major companies consulting lawyers about this possibility. Management officials from a major local alcohol and beverage producing company have made it clear, in the past when I was President, that the company would be seeking a refund depending on the outcome of the DDL matter,” he noted.last_img read more

U.S. Gov’t Deports 17 Liberians

Posted on by

first_imgLiberian Immigration Service (LIS), formerly the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization, on Tuesday received 17 of 21 Liberian deportees who have been living in the United States of America (USA). The Liberians returned to the country yesterday after they were deported by the U.S. government for various charges.They arrived in the country on a chartered flight at the Roberts International Airport in Margibi County.Of the remaining four, LIS said they were lucky to escape deportation because the appeal against their forceful deportation was accepted.The deportees’ charges include aggravated assault, resisting arrest and trafficking of illegal drugs.The LIS did not explain if the Liberians were given the opportunity to be heard by a court in the U.S.LIS spokesperson, Abraham Dolley, told the Daily Observer via mobile phone that the deportees had gone through the LIS’ usual preliminary counseling session before they were turned over to their respective relatives.Dolley said only one of the 17 is yet to be reunited with his relative, “because none of them have showed up to sign for him.”He did not give the identity of the 17 deportees, but maintained they are all Liberians.He continued, “They are going to report weekly to continue their counseling sessions until they are certificated and integrated into our society.”He said the LIS would ensure that the required regulations for deportees are followed and enforced to the letter.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Palmdale crime-fighting plan to involve citizens

Posted on by

first_imgThe stakeholder meetings will conclude with a meeting of representatives from the business community, chambers of commerce and government entities on Thursday. City staff members plan to present the program to the City Council at a meeting on March5. The plan will have eight pieces: youth engagement; establishing city-owned “neighborhood houses;” greatly expanding Neighborhood Watch; starting a “citizen academy;” conducting family education and mediation; establishing neighborhood commissions; providing grants and loans to fix up homes; and encouraging volunteerism. In the area of youth engagement, Palmdale officials said the city wants to go beyond just providing sports programs as an alternative to crime. That could mean providing such things as counseling, mentoring programs, or vocational programs. The idea of neighborhood houses is an extension of an old idea. In the past, as the city focused on redeveloping particular areas, officials used a home as a base to provide neighbors with information on city programs available to them – homes that would then be sold off as projects ended. PALMDALE – Palmdale officials will hold a series of meetings next week with a variety of community organizations to help craft a citizen-based crime-fighting plan. The goal of these “stakeholder” meetings is to help the city flesh out a new program dubbed Partners for a Better Palmdale. Details of the plan are being formulated, but city officials said the program will be neighborhood-based and will have a heavy volunteer component. “We hope to inform the stakeholders of what we’re doing, solicit their input and solicit them as partners as we move forward,” Mayor Jim Ledford said. “For this program to be successful, they have to be on board.” On Tuesday, the city will meet with representatives from churches, schools and the Sheriff’s Department. That will be followed Wednesday with a meeting with representatives of nonprofit, service, faith-based and youth organizations. The city now wants to have such homes as permanent bases. The city also wants to expand its Neighborhood Watch program. There are about 200 Neighborhood Watch efforts in the city, and hundreds more are envisioned. The idea of a citizen academy is to provide training about how city government works and what programs and resources are available to its residents. The academy could be used to help train volunteers working on various elements of the plan or just to better educate residents who want to learn more about the city. The plan calls for creating neighborhood commissions composed of representatives of such interested parties as schools, churches, service organizations and law enforcement. The commissions could help get the word out about available programs and see what efforts need to be enacted to improve a neighborhood. The city also is looking to see what kinds of grants and loan programs could be made available to help residents spruce up their homes and neighborhoods. james.skeen@dailynews (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
