The issues of tax compliance, enforcement and exchange of information will top the agenda when the Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) hosts the 37th annual Technical Conference of the Commonwealth Association of Tax Administrators next week.
Over 140 delegates including representatives from Commonwealth nations, tax advisors from international agencies, and members of the business community are expected to attend the November 7-11 meeting, which will be held at the Hilton Hotel under the theme ‘Enhancing Tax Compliance through Strategic Alliances’.
“This forum provides an excellent platform to share experiences on strategies for enhancing tax compliance as well as identifying opportunities for stronger cooperation between respective tax administrations,” the BRA’s communications officer Erica Lazare said.
Lazare added that this is the first time in 17 years that a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member state is hosting the conference. Belize hosted the meeting in 1999.
