|GRA continues its fight against corruption|
In its normal day to day operations, the Revenue Authority has unearthed an illegal operation involving some unscrupulous members of its staff working in collusion with willing outside participants and members of the public in the issuance and use of forged drivers’ licences, certificate of compliances and registrations.
Effective July 1, 2018, the following shall be the rates of exchange for the purpose of the provision to Section 22(1) (a) of the Customs Act, Chapter 82:01:-
|COUNTRY||CURRENCY UNIT||GUYANA DOLLAR|
|Trinidad & Tobago||Dollar||30.72|
|United Kingdom||Pounds Sterling||275.28|
|United States of America||Dollars||208.50|
|United Arab Emirates (UAE)||Dirham||56.76|
The notification under Section 22 (2)(c) of the Customs Act, Chapter 82:01 last published by the Commissioner-General, Guyana Revenue Authority in the Official Gazette is hereby superseded.
The above rates of exchange are published solely for the purpose of Customs collection and may not correspond with the rates of exchange, which the Commercial Banks employ in the course of their business.
