Many small-business owners today find themselves more challenged than ever, trying to survive and grow their business amid tight financial circumstances.

The removal of the UBT will help small businesses survive and thrive in these tough economic times.

This will result in the creation of new jobs and greater opportunity for all, as our economy recovers.

In response Prime Minister Gaston Browne said:

The brain dead Harold Lovell and his lazy minded UPP charlatans, will give away the blasted treasury and bankrupt the country again to gain power.
Desperation reigns.

  1. Gaston did the EXACT SAME THING with abolition of income tax in 2014 when he wanted to win the election and become PM. Pot calling kettle black!

    • Gaston before removing income tax ensured there was revenue from others sources eg. Consumption tax on fuel. There was also the discussion on increasing VAT from 15 to 17.5%

  2. I am reading right? They going to repeal a tax yet at the same time making promises after promises to pay this pay that. Is monopoly money the hoping to use or what?

    • Yes you are reading right.
      Lower taxes generate more economic activity as the yield is higher.
      The amount saved from the rampant corruption of the ABLP, including the elimination of β€˜enrich yourself scheme’ will stop the tide.
      The UPP has done it before and they will do it again.
      All the ABLP ever do is line their pockets at the public’s expense.
      UPP on the other hand put the money to the public’s use: PEOPLE FIRST

        • They are in opposition because the ABLP LIE AND LIE AND LIE AND BRIBE THE PEOPLE.

          I only hope Antiguans wake up this time!!!!

          As Short Shirt says

          • YOU SEEM TRULY DESPERATE AND VERY BITTER. A BAPE YOU GOING TO BE IN OPPOSITION AGAIN. ALWAYS WITH YOU’ALL CRAP ABOUT BRIBE FU VOTES.

      • They did it before? When? Guy when the UPP came into office they made clear our tax to GDP was too low, they then implemented the stabilization fund aka income tax. Next they implemented VAT. Later on they added revenue recovery charge. Then there was the reform of the property tax to value based where they argued it would mean more government revenue. During HL time in office as FM, there was only one year we had anything close to growth (2012 @ 3.4%). The next year (2013) the lowered figured (-.6%) indicated we back in a recession. Thank God we now have a driver who can drive in GB

  3. Gaston what about the Deluxe building bail out and the Lee Wind Paints bail out. How do you justify helping out Max to purchase a building that has been sitting idle for years? Total waste of money. Why was acquiring that building a priority? How does it help poor people?

  4. Did anyone listen to the Voice this morning and heard about the corruption that took place at the Cuban embassy yet #HFWL want us to believe he is pious and holy when it comes to “good governance”.

    • Me nar even bother wid dem one but ah hyproctites that hab amnesia lakka 2004-2014 neva happen.

  5. To Starrie, bertaboi, just saying and ……..

    • @POVERTY If you think promises can full belly then carryon pulling it up. What I want you to tell us when exactly will all these promises be fulfilled.

      Did you listen to Al’s show yesterday and heard how he put to pieces the conversation between puppeteers Knight and Potter to a simple question that Mr Harris had asked…ooh ooh

  6. When I heard about the corruption this morning that took place at the embassy in Cuban when #HFWL was minister of finance I said to myself that ambassador was more fitting to be in Guantanamo than those Taliban’s.

  7. All local contractors and their families are suffering. No money in the treasury to pay for goods and services. The only person that are getting paid is Jr. the small change son of him in high place ( 30,000.00) , the Baba that got millions to build the hospital west of YSCO and in every thing Kool. They are some of the kick backs guys . The other suppliers, School uniforms , equipment owners , cleaning companies are suffering. This government bankrupt local contractors. Only their business thriving. Time for equity, picky head people time Kool and brothers.

  8. YOU’RE RIGHT I HAVE TO SING FOR MY SUPPER. WHERE I WORK HAD YOU ALL REMAINED IN POWER AFTER 2014 AND HAD YOU’ALL WAY, MY WORKPLACE WOULD HAVE BEEN SOLD. DO YOU REMEMBER THAT? STATE INSURANCE, TELECOMS BUSINESS UNIT ETC?
