Customs officers from a Caribbean island are in Bermuda to research the land valuation process.

The Montserrat Customs and Revenue Service arranged the visit after the Land Valuation Department made a presentation at the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre Property Taxation Conference in 2016.

MCRS members have been in Bermuda since October 8 to research:

• Bermuda’s property valuation system and operations for land taxation purposes.

• Billing and collection of land tax.

• The Land Valuation Department’s IT databases.

The visit has included two days of on-site property inspections with the department’s valuation survey technicians.
