February 23, 2017 (Nassau, Bahamas) – The Department of Inland Revenue introduces its VAT Stamp Correspondence Portal.

The VAT Stamp Correspondence Portal allows our clients to electronically submit conveyances and other supporting documents (sales agreements and appraisal reports) which are required for the assessment of Value Added Tax on property transfers.

Such documents are to be sent to vatstampdutydocs@bahamas.gov.bs.

When submitting documents to the portal the following points should be strictly adhered to:

  • The subject line should include both the attorney and client’s names as well as a contact number
  • Documents are to be sent as PDF files
  • The email size should not exceed 20MB
