Saint Lucia Housing Market To Benefit From 2-Year VAT Amnesty On Select Materials


(St Lucia Times) Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Hon. Philip J. Pierre, has tabled a Resolution in the Parliament to provide additional economic relief to the public and spur economic development by the removal of Value Added Tax on select building materials.

The Prime Minister first informed the Parliament and the Saint Lucian public of the government’s intention to remove VAT on building materials during his budget address in April.

On July 11, 2023, the Lower House expressed support for the Prime Minister’s Resolution to suspend VAT charges, a reduction of 12.5% on current prices, on plywood, lumber, cement, steel, galvanise and solar pv systems from August 2, 2023, to August 1, 2025.
