Consultation on Tax Reliefs to Support Rural Tax Development Launched

The Falkland Islands Government is considering the introduction of a number of tax reliefs designed to facilitate growth in the rural economy as envisaged in the Islands’ Rural Development Strategy. The Policy Unit has today launched a consultation to gather feedback from businesses and members of the public on the proposals that are being put forward.

The Falkland Islands Government’s Head of Policy, Jamie Fotheringham said

“The proposals for tax reliefs for rural businesses – and for individuals and businesses who support rural development – are one element of a strategy to make it easier to set up and grow a business in Camp. The consultation focusses specifically on tax reliefs – so that we can make sure these will be effective – but they shouldn’t be considered in isolation. In tandem with investments in infrastructure and other forms of business support it is hoped that the combined package will help deliver on our ambitions for the revitalisation of Camp.”
