Officials from telecommunications company Digicel have told Prime Minister Gaston Browne that the company does not owe any corporate taxes to the government.
The Prime Minister met today for about one hour with the Chief Executive Officer Dwayne Tulloch and the Sales Director of Digicel Clement Samuel.
According to a statement from the government, three officials held substantive discussions regarding the issue of taxes, set-offs, and closer collaboration between the private firm and the Government.
“The Digicel officials indicated that the corporate tax set-off agreement has ended and that all taxes are fully paid-up,” the statement said.
The Digicel CEO said however that there is an existing set-off agreement between APUA and Digicel, dating back to 2012, which has 18 months left before it expires.
Recently, the prime minister called on Digicel and competitor Flow to pay what they owe or leave the country.
The prime minister is now praising Digicel for its good corporate citizenship, saying that whatever issues exist can be resolved.
Flow has not commented publicly on the matter.
