13th EFF Review
13th EFF Review

The 13th review of Jamaica’s performance under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF)-supported programme was recently concluded. All quantitative performance targets and associated structural benchmarks for the June 2016 quarter have been met. Policy implementation under the economic reform programme has remained exceptionally strong since the start of the programme. The economy continues to reflect generally positive trends: Annual inflation is continuing at record lows; the country’s international reserves are rising; the current account deficit of the balance of payments is at a sustainable level and is improving; private sector credit is expanding and the outlook is for strengthened economic recovery in the near to medium-term. Debt remains on a downward trajectory and the recent liability management operation has reduced refinancing risks. The Government remains strident in its goal to promote equity, efficiency and uniformity in the tax system and, with full support from the IMF, will continue efforts aimed at rebalancing from direct taxation towards more broad-based and growth-inducing indirect tax measures.

Ian Wood, an Advance Pricing Agreement (APA) expert affiliated to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), meets with Finance Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw and his technical teams from Tax Administration of Jamaica and the Taxation Policy Division (MoFPS) earlier this week at the Ministry. The discussions centred around possible bi-lateral agreements with agencies of government, and the application of a co-operative approach to the implementation of Transfer Pricing Provision. 
Minister Shaw advised the meeting that his intent was to ensure that the implementation of Transfer Pricing Rules was to be "aligned with international best practice and should build a comfort level with the business sector." He added that the implementation should not be adversarial and should level the playing field. In this context, Minister Shaw said the development of mutually acceptable Advance Pricing agreements (APAs) should be encouraged.
