BRA best way

MINISTER OF FINANCE Chris Sinckler has admitted the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) has been a trouble fit so far, and this is even damaging staff morale at the Customs and Excise Department.

But he is still convinced the BRA is the best way to go, and remains very much alive as Government’s central revenue entity.

“I believe the delay in merging customs into the BRA is in fact causing a postponement of efficiency building mechanisms, affecting staff morale, and creating operational challenges for both staff and particularly private and public sector users of the Bridgetown Port,” Sinckler told the DAILY NATION yesterday.

The minister was responding to suggestions made by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) last week that solving issues with the BRA would lead to improved economic stability in the country.
