Anguilla Businesses Stage Lockdown Protest

The Anguilla business sector is following through with an announced planned interruption of business transactions, across the island, until a fair and equitable arrangement is reached, with the Government of Anguilla, with regard to the July 1st implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The business community has been in discussions with the Government of Anguilla for several months leading up to the implementation of the GST and, in recent times, the frequency and intensity of those meetings have increased. However, at the eleventh hour, with July 1st upon us, the business community has realised that both sides are at an impasse. As such, the business sector has started what is planned to be a four-day lockdown of commercial activity on the island, with effect from June 29 – July 02.
