It has turned out to be one of the hardest proverbial pills to swallow since its announcement, and it is the firm position of Parliamentarians within the Opposition Party, the People’s Progressive Party Civic,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, that no Guyanese will escape paying the additional 14 per cent Value Added Tax on electricity and water bills exceeding $10,000 and $1,500 respectively.The application of VAT on these two utility items was announced last two Mondays ago by Minister of Finance Winston Jordan during his 2017 budget speech presentation.However, according to Opposition Member of Parliament Juan Edghill yesterday, the exemption of VAT means that the tax on inputs is borne by the trader, and if that trader is to sell to the public, he must pass on the tax on inputs to the customers or cut down on his factors of production, capital and labour.Edghill defended his position during his contribution to the ongoing 2017 budget debates in the National Assembly.He said, “In a simple example, the bread manufacturer would have been able to recover input VAT since his output was zero rated. Now that his output is exempted from the tax, he must absorb the VAT and only maintain his profitability by passing on the cost to consumers.”Edghill also went on to critique the new tax regime which is expected to be instituted by the government in 2017.

He said, “In the same basket that would cost before VAT,Cheap Jerseys 2018, $348,406 because $253,985 was zero rated and $3,400 was exempt with 16 per cent VAT, you only paid $14,Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Mens,563.”He said that when the VAT was 16 per cent,Soccer Jerseys China, persons paid less when compared to having to pay the soon to be implemented 14 per cent tax.Similar sentiments were expressed by Edghill’s fellow opposition colleague,Cheap Wholesale Jerseys, Dharamkumar Seeraj who reiterated the point that nobody will be made to escape paying the VAT on water and electricity.
