The Revenue Enhancement Project (REP) Awareness Statement

Posted on: January 30, 2017

January 30th, 2017 (Nassau, Bahamas) – Recently, the Ministry of Finance, through its Revenue Enhancement Project (REP), began a process aimed at reducing tax evasion and increasing compliance. This initiative will not raise taxes on anybody – instead, we aim to propagate fairness by improving detection and collection methods for businesses and individuals who are not currently compliant.

As part of this effort, you may receive a letter in the mail or via courier. The letters contain step by step instructions on how to contact us in order to resolve any discrepancy.

We hope this effort will lead to a more just and equal economic environment for everyone. Thank you for your understanding.

For additional information contact the department at (242) 461-8050.
