Curtis Dickinson will answer questions about the Pre-Budget Report at a public meeting.

The finance minister will be joined by his deputy, Wayne Furbert, at the event in Goodwin C. Smith Hall, Heritage Worship Centre, Dundonald Street, on Wednesday, at 6pm.

The report provides some insight into the Government’s plans for the next fiscal year, which will be expanded in the annual Budget Statement, which Mr Dickinson will deliver on February 22.

Proposals include possible taxes on homes, where the main function is for rental to tourists or to employees in international business; a 5 per cent general services tax on goods and services; and a 7.5 per cent tax on professional services.

The Pre-Budget Report can be found at www.gov.bm/prebudgetreport. Send comments to openbudget@gov.bm.
