For Details of the following Noteworthy Points in the

Please download the PDF document by clicking here or below, under "Publications", entitled: '2018 Budget Notes on interesting VAT developments'.


Click here to see the Agricultural Marketing Authority (Livestock Development Levy) Statutory Instrument (SI) 129 of 2017, which requires that:

a) All registered cattle abattoirs be charged $10 per animal, b) All registered milk processors be charged 1 cent per litre, and c) All registered chick producers be charged 1 cent per chick.

These levies will go into a fund for disease control and livestock development activities. Stakeholders in the livestock value chains are surprised by the announcement of the new SI levying the livestock sector at a time when the Office of the Presidency and Cabinet is in the process of negotiation to reduce the regulatory costs of doing business by at least 50%. The LMAC has already approached the Ministry of Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development through the Deputy Minister responsible for Livestock to consider a freeze in the implementation of this Statutory Instrument to allow for intensive stakeholder consultations towards a livestock development fund whose terms are agreeable to beef, dairy and poultry farmers, industry and Government. LMAC also coordinated a caucus meeting of all farmers' unions and livestock industry associations on 20 October to chart the way forward and produce a joint statement for communicating industry reservations and suggestions to policy makers. Thank you to all those who submitted suggestions and comments.
