The general public is advised to be on the lookout for persons posing as Guyana Revenue Authority officers who are visiting shops and other business premises to conduct “enforcement checks.” Several of these reported acts have occurred on the East Coast of Demerara, East Bank of Demerara and West Coast of Demerara in recent weeks.
