Colm Imbert, the Minister of Finance on Thursday sent an invitation to meet all the casino owners and shareholders to discuss the 100 percent increase in gaming taxes. All the owners, shareholders, directors of private members’ clubs and another such business establishment that indulge in casino-type business are invited to discuss taxation of gambling devices and tables.
This is meeting is said to essential because the gaming taxes are imposed on the owners of casinos and not on the employees of these gambling establishment, said the Ministry of Finance.
All the owners, shareholders and directors of these establishments are therefore asked to notify their willingness as soon as possible. The date and time of the meeting is still to be determined, while it will be held at the Eric Williams Financial Complex.
