Dear Members and Friends

Every year, the Chamber is invited by the Ministry of Finance to submit its budget wish list for tax measures. This is compiled with dedication by the members of our Tax Policy Interest Group and always passes a reasonableness test before submission.

SICC never advocates something either unreasonable or overly advantageous to one sector or industry. Click here to review the wish list for Budget 2020. A word of warning: it is very technical. That’s because it needs to be. After all, taxes are one of two certainties in life!

To fully understand what Budget 2020 will mean for you and your business, you could not do better than attend our annual Post-Budget event on 27 Feb. Click here to check out the speakers and to register.

Continue to keep safe and to act responsibly.

All the best for the week ahead.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
