Treasury says too many duty-free waivers on used cars

0

Treasury officials have told the Cabinet of Antigua & Barbuda to reduce the number of duty-free waivers it grants for the importation of used cars.

According to the government, more than $6,400,000 in waivers of duty on imported used-automobiles have been recorded in the past 24 months.

Government’s Chief of Staff Lionel Max Hurst says “cars have become affordable to families that before could not afford to purchase automobiles.”

But he says the Treasury wished that fewer and smaller amounts be waived. 

“The Cabinet is giving every consideration to the request,” Hurst said.
