The Debt Management Unit also serves as an enforcement of the agency and targets evaders of Customs duties and VAT.The agency’s head noted that persons who do not issue receipts to customers are not accounting for VAT, and reports to the Legal Department would enable the enforcement of the law against those businesses who refuse to pay by adopting this method of business.However, enforcement activities have been successful and are reflected in the increased revenue collected. While concerned about the shortage of human resources, Sattaur said that media educational programmes have contributed greatly towards enforcement and in encouraging compliance.Regarding claims by the political Opposition that some government agencies and persons who were ‘friends of the Government’ were not paying taxes; Sattaur insisted that all taxpayers are treated fairly and justly and that there is no discrimination. “All are put under the radar, Government or otherwise,’ he declared.None untouchedHowever, with limited resources, he acknowledged that there may be the perception that the GRA does not go after those persons.

This unit, chaired by President Donald Ramotar, is given administrative support from the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL).According to Sattaur, as the largest investment in Guyana, the project will see hundreds of millions of American dollars in imports arriving by sea and having to be cleared and transported to the site at Amaila Falls.Thus the GRA’s mandate will be carried out to ensure that all is above board.Also this year GRA is moving to replace the decades-old book-format of drivers’ licences.
