A new General Service Tax(GST) for Anguilla has been deferred until next year. The new tax, a complete overall of the territory’s commercial tax regime, was due to be implemented this year after it was postponed from 2019.

The new system is going through an intensive round of public consultations with a series of meetings throughout the island hosted by government officials and consultants leading the change process.

The new measure was due to have been implemented in 2019 under the previous administration but was pushed back to January this year pending interim legislation ahead of the GST.

However, that has now been further pushed back to July 2022.

There have also been protests against the introduction of the new GST with citizens groups presenting a petition to parliament.

An official statement said, “The overall objective of GST is to provide a broad-based tax which will improve fiscal sustainability and aid the Government of Anguilla in meeting its obligations.”
