POLL: What would you choose?

Wednesday 18 January 2023

With the States of Guernsey starting debate on reforming tax policies on Wednesday 25 January, we want to know which of the options would you vote for?

Policy and Resources is adamant that without its Tax Review being approved by the States then public services will have to face severe cut backs.

P&R will be presenting their proposals to the States before an attempt is made to 'sursis' the debate by instead delaying any decisions until after a review of the make up and cost of government and public services has been carried out.

Other options have been put to the public by Deputies Charles Parkinson and Liam McKenna who want to bring in a corporate income tax - to be called CIT - rather than a goods and services tax - known as GST.

Deputies Heidi Soulsby and Gavin St Pier have presented what they have called a 'Fairer Alternative' - which looks to make savings in government spending before charging residents more in taxes.

Other amendments lodged against the proposals seek to change more minor aspects of the official P&R proposals. 

All of the amendments, and the original policy letter, can be read HERE

Before our elected representatives vote on the plans, which would you support?

When the roof needs fixing, it needs fixing. GST is much more a tax on the high spending rich. business visitors and tourists. The 15% lower income tax threshold will more that cover the cost to lower income people and families.
