Departamento de Hacienda inicia suspensión temporera del arbitrio a la gasolina y al ‘diésel oil’

Black Immigrant Daily News

The content originally appeared on: Radio Isla TV

El secretario del Departamento de Hacienda, Francisco Parés Alicea, informó que a partir de hoy y durante los próximos 45 días, estará en vigor el periodo de suspensión del cobro del arbitrio en la introducción y/o fabricación de la gasolina y del ‘diésel oil’, para importadores y fabricantes de ambos productos.

“Según establecido en la Resolución Conjunta del Senado 18-2022 (antes RC 7-2022), que ordena al Departamento suspender el cobro del arbitrio a la gasolina y al ‘diésel oil’ durante 45 días, hasta un tope de $25 millones, emitimos la Carta Circular de Rentas Internas 22-11 (CC RI 20-11), estableciendo el mecanismo para asegurar una distribución equitativa de ese tope de exención entre los importadores y/o fabricantes, además de la transferencia de la misma, hasta llegar al consumidor”, dijo el secretario.

“Cabe señalar que una vez aplicada la exención, ésta debe ser transferida a través de las distintas etapas de la cadena de distribución, hasta llegar al consumidor. Por ejemplo, si el importador introduce gasolina sujeta a la exención durante el periodo de 45 días, pero distribuye la misma posterior al periodo, ese importador no puede cobrar el arbitrio en la distribución de la gasolina, si la misma estuvo sujeta a la exención en la introducción”, explicó.

La suspensión temporera del arbitrio debe reflejarse en las estaciones de gasolina y de diésel y personal del Departamento de Asuntos del Consumidor (DACO), estará atento a que el mismo se honre.

El secretario agregó que la Carta Circular también establece el procedimiento para solicitar el reintegro de los arbitrios pagados durante el periodo de exención o sobre el inventario existente y disponible al momento de la vigencia y el procedimiento de levante a través de SURI.

La suspensión temporal del arbitrio también aplicará a los artículos exentos que tengan los importadores en existencia y disponibles al 6 de julio de 2022. Mientras que el inventario localizado en una zona libre de comercio extranjero o en un almacén de adeudos, no se entenderá disponible hasta tanto sea retirado y debidamente declarado a través del Modelo SC 2970 de Declaración de Importadores. 

Para la distribución equitativa resultado de la suspensión del arbitrio, el Departamento notificará por escrito a cada importador/fabricante, la cuantía de exención máxima que podrá reclamar. La misma se determinará según las introducciones y/o unidades manufacturadas tributables promedio, realizadas durante el año 2021, según conste en los récords del Hacienda.

“Si la cuantía de exención máxima asignada a un importador/ fabricante, se cumple antes de que transcurra el término de 45 días, dicho periodo queda finalizado”, añadió Parés Alicea. 

Debido a la naturaleza temporal de la exención, el Departamento no alterará el proceso de declarar la introducción de artículos exentos durante el periodo de 45 días. Los importadores afianzados deberán completar el Modelo SC 2970 y garantizarán con su fianza el pago del arbitrio. Mientras que los que no mantengan una fianza, deberán realizar el pago del arbitrio determinado en la Declaración y posteriormente realizar una reclamación de reintegro.

El proceso para solicitar el reintegro de los artículos exentos se realizará a través de SURI, según establecido en la CC RI 22-11 (https://hacienda.pr.gov/publicaciones/carta-circular-de-rentas-internas-num-22-11).

Parés Alicea destacó que cualquier exención o reintegro del arbitrio que sea reclamado en exceso de la cuantía máxima asignada a un importador/fabricante, conforme lo dispuesto en la Carta Circular o que sea reclamado indebidamente, podrá ser tasado, conforme al procedimiento dispuesto bajo la Sección 6010.02 (g), del Código de Rentas Internas.

Para información adicional, se pueden enviar mensajes a través de las cuentas en la plataforma digital SURI.

Secondary principals to parents of 11-plus sitters: Use break wisely | Loop Barbados

Black Immigrant Daily News

The content originally appeared on: Barbados News

Secondary school principals are appealing to the parents of students who recently sat the Barbados Secondary School’s Entrance Examination (BSSEE) to help give them a leg up when they commence the next phase of their educational journey.

Speaking to Loop after the BSSEE also known as the Common Entrance or 11-Plus Exam, two principals stressed that it was important that parents prepare their children for the secondary schools transition.

Principal of the Princess Margaret Secondary School Dr Wendy Lewis stressed that parents should encourage their children should read more during to the break.

“I think that parents should ensure that the children do some additional reading before they come back in and not just let them play for the whole vacation.

“They should get back into their books before the time,” she added.

Acting Principal of The Lodge School Robin Douglas encouraged parents to mentally prepare their children for the changes which occur from primary to secondary school, which may seem simple but for them are major.

“Secondary school differs in that they are many more subjects done by secondary school students and one of the transition difficulties that primary school students have is getting used to the movement, they’re not in one class, they often have to get up and move from place to place and to subject to subject.”

And with some guardians not putting a huge focus on Parents-Teachers Associations, especially in these post-COVID times, he explained that it takes a combined effort between teacher and parent to help the children along their journey.

“They’ll have multiple teachers, whereas in primary school they may have one main teacher and a few specialists, but in secondary school everybody is a specialist teacher, so the child may come home and talk about 12 or 13 different teachers etc and that can be a bit overwhelming sometimes for the children especially during the end of year exams.

“So what I would tell parents is to make sure that they let their children know it’s going to be quite different. They’re going to have a lot of different subjects to concentrate on and work hard at and I want to insist that parents do their utmost to work with the school that their child passes for and to form a good team with the teachers at that school, because it’s a combined effort to get the children to move on.”

Black Immigrant Daily News

Zaryah Harewood, a student of Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology (SJPI), is among six students and professionals from Commonwealth countries who were awarded the Hamish Ogston Foundation Commonwealth Bursary for The Prince’s Foundation Summer School in July 2022.

This bursary scheme was launched by the Commonwealth Heritage Forum as part of The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Commonwealth Heritage Skills Training Programme, and funded by Hamish Ogston Foundation.

“When I heard about the scholarship, although a bit hesitant, as I felt many persons who had more experience than me would have applied. However, I took the chance, as I had the desire to learn new techniques and skills, which may not be available in Barbados” said Zaryah, who will pursue a Diploma in Carpentry and Joinery at SJPI on his return.

The offer letter to Zaryah signed by Dr Sydney Ayers Mercer, Training and Education Consultant, of the Commonwealth Heritage Forum, described the bursary as a very competitive award for which many applications were received.

The Hamish Ogston Foundation Commonwealth Bursaries are intended for those developing a career in the heritage and conservation sectors and with a desire to use and develop their skills to improve the historic built environment for this and future generations. The programme will particularly benefit architects, engineers, planners, builders, and those interested in heritage building crafts.

In expressing congratulations to Zaryah, Dr Mercer penned, “We were particularly impressed by your interest in furthering your knowledge and understanding in carpentry and traditional building skills.

Over three weeks, the bursary recipients will be based at the Dumfries House estate in Scotland. They will participate in lectures, drawing exercises, practical crafts workshops and field trips. The Prince’s Foundation Summer School provides participants with the opportunity to develop their knowledge of traditional architecture, design, and building techniques and demonstrate how these can be applied in the 21st century.

Zaryah said he was excited to accept the offer as it seems prestigious and of high standard. He expressed that he is looking forward to three weeks away from home. “I view the scholarship as developmental, exposing me to new techniques and skills. It is an opportunity, so I am very excited.”

“I want to be an architect; but when I applied to SJPI I was unable to gain acceptance in the Architectural Drafting programme, so I signed up for a Certificate in Carpentry and Joinery, after successful completion I will go on to pursue the Diploma in Carpentry and Joinery. “

The region’s rich culture and unique language, cuisine, and architecture have been shaped by its history of colonization by the Spanish, British, French, and Dutch. These countries left a bit of themselves when they took different parts of this region, which has made the region a Museum of beauty.

The diverse mix of cultures has created beautiful music, dance, and literature that you can enjoy while enjoying your vacation in this region.

If you’re looking for a diverse vacation experience with something fun to do for everyone, there’s no better place to go than the Caribbean. It is an ideal place for families, groups, and couples alike.

Traveling through this part of the world can be one of your best experiences regardless of age, beliefs, or race. With adventure, culture, and other elements that make up an ideal holiday present on these islands, you’ll feel more at home than away from home.

Fabrice Di Falco

” S’entourer des personnes folles, s’entourer des personnes brillantes, s’entourer des personnes qui croient en nos rêves en réalité je n’ai jamais imaginé. Comme je le dit souvent un jour, vous ne me verrez plus dans ce monde et celui que vous verrez, continuera. Mais de là où je sera, je saurai toujours garder un œil sur les malhonnêtes, sur les hypocrites, sur les personnes qui vous sourient et vous poignardent dans le dos. Dans ce concours, la seule partie c’est la voix, c’est le gosier, ce sont les chants qui offrent des différents voyages. On peut venir d’une île où a grandi le Chevalier Saint Georges et faire de l’Opéra à notre époque. S’il y a une chose qui est enracinée dans notre culture, c’est la vocalité. Mon idée, c’est d’aider mes frères et sœurs. Vous tous candidats aux voix des Outre-mer, avancez ensemble, ne laissez pas l’autre vous juger et vous critiquer par contre soyez excellentissimes “.

Yolaine Mourard, infirmière libérale, originaire de Fort de France, 4e prix

” Cela fait quatorze ans que je pratique le chant lyrique au conservation d’Antibes (06). C’est la première fois que je passe un concours. C’était important de représenter le chant Lyrique dans les Outre-mer. C’est pour cela que j’ai fait le trajet d’Antibes à Paris pour montrer à tout le monde que les Antillais aiment les chants Lyriques et l’Opéra. Ce prix est une reconnaissance et je suis très contente. L’importance pour moi, c’est chanter et de montrer au public ce que j’ai à l’intérieur.

Mérielle Mérine Martiniquaise, prix non lyrique musique du monde
” C’était à la fois impressionnant et très agréable. Le public était à l’écoute. J’avais une seule envie de raconter cette histoire de l’homme qu’on attend, un opéra écrit en 1924. À l’époque, on pouvait considérer que les femmes attendaient avant tout de rencontrer un homme. La chanson reste moderne, nous sommes tous en quête d’amour. J’étais très surprise à l’appel de mon nom. J’ai eu une forte pensée pour ma tante Annie et mon oncle Raymond Déravine qui habitent au diamant, un endroit que j’adore “.

Laurynn Favières, Petit-Bourg en Guadeloupe, élève au conservatoire à Paris, prix d’encouragement des Voix des Outre-mer
” C’était une grande surprise pour moi. Mais, je suis très heureuse de recevoir ce prix. Je suis satisfait de ce que j’ai fait. Je ne m’attendais pas. Je suis heureuse de voir qu’on m’encourage à continuer dans la voix que j’ai choisi. Ça reconnait le travail que j’ai fait ces dernières années Je dis merci à mes parents sont vraiment investis dans mon parcours “.

Michael Serva, cadre d’assurance maladie, 2e prix des Voix des Outre-mer
” Devant le jury et le public, j’étais un peu stressé. Je suis très fier de représenter mon île, la Guadeloupe. On a des voix. Un jeune garçon qui a quitté son île pour prendre des cours d’Opéra et qui ne savait pas ce que c’était. J’ai été claqué par la vie. Faute de revenu je n’ai pas pu suivre mon parcours au conservatoire. J’ai dû abandonner et continuer à apprendre tout seul, chez moi. Aujourd’hui, je suis fier d’avoir montré mon potentiel. J’ai chanté pour ma femme et pour ma fille. J’espère représenter la Guadeloupe dans l’excellence “.

Axelle Saint Cirel, diplômée au conservatoire de musique de Paris, 1er prix Voix des outremers à Paris :
” C’est avec beaucoup de joie, beaucoup d’émotions que je reçois ce premier prix des voix des Outre-mer. J’ai fait le concours, il y a maintenant deux ans où j’étais allée jusqu’en finale et c’est mon camarade, Edwin Fardini, qui avait remporté le prix. Deux plus tard, me revoilà, je suis très heureuse. J’ai beaucoup travailler en deux ans. Je suis contente que mon travail à payer. Musicalement, vocalement, je suis plus sûre de moi. C’est que du bonheur
