In respect of individuals, the Personal Income Tax (PIT) threshold or tax-free income increases to $507,312.00 per annum, up from $441,168.00 per annum. The increase in the threshold means that the corresponding tax-free portion to be used by employers in making periodic payments is as follows: $9,756 weekly $19,512 fortnightly $42,276 monthly Persons are reminded that income in excess of the threshold will continue to be taxed at 25%.

Also on January 1, 2013, unregulated companies will see a reduction in the rate of Corporate Income Tax (CIT) to 25%, down from 33 1/3%. This brings the CIT rate for unregulated companies in line with the Personal Income Tax (PIT) rate of 25%. However, the rate remains at 33?% for regulated companies, including those regulated by the: Financial Services Commission (FSC) Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) Ministry of Finance and Planning (MOFP) Individuals and unregulated companies are advised that the new threshold and reduced tax rate are not to be applied in computing their final income tax for assessment year 2012. However it should be used in computing the estimated income tax for assessment year 2013. Both the final income tax return for 2012 and the estimated income tax return for 2013 are due to be filed on or before March 15, 2013. The adjustments in the threshold and CIT rate form part of the Government’s revenue measures tabled in parliament during the 2012/2013 budget presentation and further outlined in the recent White Paper on Tax Reform.

The words of Former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham on the FNM platform in Nassau just hours after thousands stood for hours in long lines waiting to cast their ballot at special voting centres on Wednesday. Describing the current acting parliamentary Registration Commissioner, Sherlyn Hall as incompetent for the job, Ingraham laid the blame on PM Perry Christie for the chaos ensued at polling stations. He says the Prime Minister was well aware, and “warned in advance that Hall was not fit for the job”, and called for him to retire forthwith.Ingraham described the chaotic situation on Wednesday served as embarrassing for The Bahamas as a nation before the international community as it displayed its inability to conduct a fair electoral process. He cited the last time such confusion erupted during polling, was in 1987; which was 30 years ago. He went on to question why the “The minister responsible for the Electoral process was unable to comment on the matter, as well as the Prime Minister, who is responsible for our democracy, stayed quiet”.
Source is distributing 200,000 copies into U.S. and Canadian retailers for a 3-month period until the end of March. Distribution will include Wal-Mart, Barnes & Noble, drug store chains and grocery stores such as Kroger, Safeway and A&P. Cover price is $4.99 in the U.S. and $5.99 in Canada.Source took a similar newsstand-heavy focus with a spring 2010 launch, Bound by ink, an enthusiast title that chronicles the impact of art on tattoo culture. That title, however, has a close tie-in with Source’s stable of automotive and motorcycle brands. Source Interlink Companies’ publishing group, Source Interlink Media, has expanded its reach into the women’s market with the launch of a new title called Harmony. The magazine, which will feature content on balancing work, life and health for women, is currently planned as a newsstand-only special edition.In addition to its media distribution group, Source publishes about 70 magazines, all of which it purchased from Primedia in the heady M&A days of 2007 for $1.2 billion. Most of the titles are in the automobile, motorcycle, marine and home technology verticals. Harmony marks Source’s first solid entry into the women’s health and lifestyle market. Lynn Leahey, Harmony‘s editorial director, describes the magazine as more of a one-off, but if sales spike then the title could transition into a longer-term strategy. “We’re optimistic. If it works as well as we hope then you will definitely see more,” she says. The magazine straddles health, fitness, beauty, family and food coverage. It’s a crowded market, but Leahey says it offers a different point of entry, collecting content on all those topics in one title.
