Customs to plug loopholes



With that subtle warning yesterday, the island’s new Comptroller of Customs set the record straight that his department would be coming after the millions of dollars available from levies and tariffs for items brought into Barbados, most of which were able to sneak through the cracks in previous years.

Owen Holder also admitted that his department continued to work on getting the kinks out of the controversial ASYCUDA (Automated System for Customs Data) World system which had left retailers, importers and brokers a frustrated lot over the last month.

He promised that most issues should be solved within the next fortnight. (BA)
