With tax season upon us in Barbados and the country under a 24-hour curfew, the Barbados Revenue Authority has reopened two of its branches to assist with the processing of taxpayer requests and submissions.

The Barbados Revenue Authority reopened the Weymouth Corporate Centre and Warrens Towers II locations to facilitate limited transactions today, Wednesday, April 22.

According to the release, the re-opening is "to further enable payments in relation to PAYE, VAT and income tax during the period of the curfew. The offices will open from 9 am to 1 pm and will follow the recommended physical distancing protocols." As the fight to combat the novel coronavirus continues, social distance and sanitizing are enforced.

The Barbados Revenue Authority reminds the public that payments for licensing transactions remain suspended during the period.

The other options available for making payments to the Authority during the curfew are by submitting cheque payments in the drop boxes at Warrens and Weymouth, or through online banking platforms.

Cheque payments using the drop boxes must be placed in a sealed envelope and must be accompanied by the Electronic Payment Advice (EPA) or a note detailing the TIN or Map Reference Number, tax type and tax period or tax year.

Alternatively, taxpayers may make payments through their online banking platform by adding the Barbados Revenue Authority as a payee for transferring funds. The Authority’s account details may be found at www.bra.gov.bb/Pay under Bank/Wire Transfers.
