Press Releases

(December 19, 2023) The Ministry of Finance, Economic Affairs and Investment extends warm Seasons Greetings to all Barbadians and those visiting with us over the Yuletide Season.

Due to numerous social media campaigns and other media commentary which have contributed to heightened expectations of a VAT-free Holiday, potentially leading to a slowdown in actual economic activity, the Ministry of Finance advises the public and the business community to conduct their business with no such expectation.

The Ministry of Finance wishes members of the public a safe, peaceful and festive Yuletide Season and all the very best for 2024. (Ministry of Finance, Economic Affairs and Investment)
