For Defrauding Gov’t of Taxes LRA Shuts Down Foreign Businesses

first_imgThe Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) last Saturday shut down several foreign businesses for failing to live up to their tax obligation and depriving the government of tax revenues.The LRA, which is responsible to collect government’s revenues, obtained a writ of search and seizure warrant through the Ministry of Justice from the Monrovia Magisterial Court at the Temple of Justice.The LRA Legal Counsel, Atty. Max T. Duncan, along with a few LRA staff and backed by court officers, were seen enforcing the court order on Broad and Randall Streets.According to the court document, 18 defaulting businesses operated by Lebanese were affected.Stipendiary Magistrate Kennedy Peabody, in his writ of search and seizure warrant to the sheriff of the court stated, “You are further commanded that upon the discovery of these items to bring them before this honorable court in keeping with law and make your returns and endorse at the back of this writ as to the form and manner of service thereof. And for so doing, this shall constitute your legal and sufficient authority.”But lawyers representing some of the affected businesses told  journalists that the search and seizure warrants used by LRA were unlawful.Meanwhile, the LRA is warning all businesses operating in the Liberia, especially those which  find themselves in similar situations, should quickly come and settle their liabilities because this is the last of the tools that “We are going to use to mobilize revenues and we don’t want to get to this point.”“We (LRA) even preferred that businesses should be self-compliant without the authority having to take draconian actions, but if they failed, the law would take its course.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CBL Warns Illegal Money Exchangers

first_imgPres. Weah: “Our currency is in free fall, inflation is rising and… our foreign reserve is at an all-time low.” (Above: Forex Bureaus around Monrovia show the exchange rate well above L$130/US$1. )The Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) has warned that all illegal money exchange operators and businesses engaged in foreign exchange activities in the country have up until Tuesday, May 1, 2018, to regularize their status or risk confiscation of their money and/or shutting down of their businesses.In a press release, the CBL said a Joint Task Force, comprising the CBL, stakeholder government agencies, the National Association of Foreign Exchange Bureaux (NAFEBOL) and law enforcement officers will begin a rigorous campaign in May 2018 aimed at weeding out illegal foreign exchange operators.The Bank is advising all illegal money exchangers and other businesses concerned to take the necessary steps by having their businesses duly registered and licensed by the CBL to deal in foreign exchange business in order to avoid embarrassment.CBL said the Bank is working with NAFEBOL to bring together smaller “money exchangers” under a more structured arrangement that would allow them to formalize their operations in keeping with the requirements of the CBL and the Government’s Pro-Poor Agenda.All those concerned are advised to take due note and act accordingly, as the Joint Task Force sets out as of May, 2018, to begin removing illegal foreign exchange operators from the streets.In addition, the Bank will work with the Ministry of Commerce & Industry to monitor businesses violating the foreign exchange laws of the country by operating as unlicensed foreign exchange dealers. The move by Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) comes amidst   concerns over the continued arbitrary hiking of the exchange rate by illegal money exchangers and some businesses despite repeated warnings by the CBL cautioning those involved to desist.  The action by these unlicensed money exchangers, the Bank noted, is in direct violation of regulations governing the Foreign Exchange transactions in the country, the new Financial Institutions Act of 1999 and the CBL Act.These unauthorized money exchangers continue to undermine the CBL’s efforts to help mitigate exchange rate volatility, thereby resulting in the escalation of the prices of goods and services on the Liberian market which is significantly contributing to the hardship on the ordinary Liberian people and is counterproductive to the Government’s Pro-Poor agenda.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
