New tax department Curaçao in 2014

WILLEMSTAD – Several tax projects will be implemented. Minister of Finance, José Jardim, will start deliberations next week for the introduction of the New Tax Department Curaçao (NBC). As this project, which was already announced in 2000, was never implemented, Jardim wants to realize it in 2014. Among other things, the new tax organization means that levy, collection and tax inspections will fall under one entity. For instance the tax accountants bureau will become part of the new department and no longer exist as independent institution.


Jardim also announced an audit at the Institution Tax Accountants Bureau (SBAB) to investigate all projects from the institution and to improve the payment behavior. Also the project for seal cash registers and the collection of taxes in general will be investigated.

Especially independent parliamentarian Glenn Sulvaran was not pleased with several of the SBAB projects. He got the impression that the institution was a promoter of concerts and not a tax accountant. According to Sulvaran, the current tendency is that government entities don’t stick to their main tasks. He warned that if this tendency continues the functioning of the government will eventually come to a standstill.
