How Wade is building a better working world
Governments in the Caribbean are under pressure to comply with international standards and to reform areas such as the international business sector and manufacturing incentive legislation. Compliance is crucial for the region, as this has a direct impact on employment in the sectors and revenue for the countries involved.
EY’s knowledge and experience in tax policy enables us to propose solutions that meet these international standards, but also allow these sectors of the economy to remain sustainable. These solutions strengthen the region by contributing to sustaining jobs and government revenues. The result of this is increased capacity for public works, therefore contributing to development in key areas such as schools, healthcare, and energy infrastructure.
