Consultation on Support Rural Tax Development Launched

Consultation on Support Rural Tax Development Launched

By J. Brock (FINN)

The introduction of a number of tax reliefs designed to facilitate growth in the rural economy are being considered by the Falkland Islands Government. Designed to facilitate growth in the rural economy, the consultation as envisaged in the Islands Rural Development Strategy, the public is asked for input. The Policy Unit has today launched a consultation to gather feedback from businesses and members of the public on the proposals that are being put forward.

The proposals for tax reliefs for rural businesses  and for individuals and businesses who support rural development  are one element of a strategy to make it easier to set up and grow a business in Camp. The consultation focusses specifically on tax reliefs - so that we can make sure these will be effective  but they shouldnt be considered in isolation. In tandem with investments in infrastructure and other forms of business support it is hoped that the combined package will help deliver on our ambitions for the revitalisation of Camp. said the Falkland Islands Governments Head of Policy, Jamie Fotheringham.
