Staff at the Inland Revenue Department, the (IRD) are excited about returning to their original location on the Waterfront in Castries.
This is after a more than two-year absence from the building and extensive renovation work carried out to improve their physical environment.
Marcia Vité, Comptroller at the IRD explained that “We had been a bit fragmented, if you want to call it that, trying to operate in approximately four or five locations. So now, our locations at the Blue Coral Mall, at Laborie Street and the one at Accountant General’s Office, will all be relocating to the Waterfront in order to serve the public a lot better.”
The move to the Waterfront, she said, will take the form of a staggered approach for approximately two weeks in an effort to minimise disruption to vital services offered by the IRD.
Ms. Vité notes that “We’re trying to start off with our Taxpayer Service Unit and our Cash Unit being functional at least by the 29th of July. We will be closed from the 26th of July which will enable us to relocate to the waterfront”.
