G.S.T. Screwed Up Service?

Having been denied an opportunity to explain to the department where they are purportedly mistaken in their calculation of his taxes, Rosado turned to Chartered Public Accountant Cedric Flowers.  According to Rosado, several discrepancies were immediately identified by the reliable accounting firm.

“With this bill that GST has sent me, I must say on record that they never gave me the opportunity to defend myself and I have contacted some attorneys and some very senior accountants and they are very amazed that I was never given the opportunity by a professional, what do you call it, NGO, or a professional department of the government, not to give an opportunity to explain how this seven hundred thousand came about.  I need to know and I need to defend myself because it is not fair.  I’ve been working all my life and now I have to work the next half of my life with less strength and more age to pay the government this amount of money.  It’s a lot of money, but thank God for the great minds of the attorneys and the accountants that we need to rewind selector a little bit and find out how we could get a proper notification from GST, so that they can hear me out and defend myself with this high bill.”

“Now I note that accountant Cedric Flowers has looked over these numbers, these figures, as to how it amounts to almost seven hundred thousand dollars and he raised several concerns within that letter that he wrote on your behalf.  Would you be at liberty to share with us some of the points that he was making?”

“Mr. Cedric Flowers is one of the most famous accountant firm in Belize City and everybody recommended him and all that he is trying to do for me and for my business is for my business and myself to have a fair chance to answer to all this paper trail or bills that GST have sent to me.  And Mr. Cedric Flowers has seen the part whereby I live on two and a half miles Western Highway and this notification or this bill from GST which in itself is like a summons was sent to the other business that I have at the tire shop at two and a half miles on the Northern Highway.  The point was that there was a time limit and the time has expired, but it wasn’t my fault.  GST knows where I live; I live on the main road.  They could have…I don’t know whatsapp, email, phone call, whatever. But it didn’t happen. At the end of the day, Mr. Cedric Flowers is doing everything for us to get back on the table.”
