NATIONAL ASSEMBLY APPROVES AMENDMENTS TO REVENUE ADMINISTRATION LAW

The National Assembly has this week approved several amendments to the Revenue Administration Law putting Seychelles on par with international conventions.

Vice President Danny Faure brought the proposed amendments before the National Assembly in the absence of the Minister for Finance, Trade and the Blue Economy, Jean-Paul Adam. He said the amendments will allow the Minister to reveal information on large companies considered confidential when required in tax evasion court cases.

The amendments follow reports that some companies fail to pay taxes on the profits in the country they are operating in. Countries have therefore been asked to update their laws in order to enable governments to recuperate outstanding revenues. Vice President Faure added that such cooperation between countries and agencies will further help to build the capacity of those involved in revenue collection.

For their part, while deliberating on the proposed amendments, the Members of the National Assembly pointed out that only a handful of individuals will have access to the information so as not to compromise its confidential status.

SEYPEC TANKER RESCUES MALAGASY BOAT IN DISTRESS

The Seychelles Petroleum Company Maritime Tanker Seychelles Paradise was involved in the rescue operation of a Malagasy boat during one of its trips North West of Nosy Be, Madagascar. 

The incident occurred during the early hours of April 1st, when a duty watchman reported sighting of a white light on port side of the vessel. Upon investigation the crew on board observed a 15 foot White hull boat with one outboard engine.

The Master on board Seychelles Paradise Captain Adrian Mondon, said upon approaching the stricken vessel, they discovered 15 people including two small boys on board. They had apparently lost their way during bad weather and were experiencing engine problems.

The occupants were welcomed onboard MT Seychelles Paradise. During the above period and throughout their “stay” alongside we provided the occupants of the stricken boat with raincoats, dry bed sheets and warm blankets followed by hot beverages and biscuits. The Chief Cook was called up to prepare some hot meals for them.” Said Captain Mondon

The incident was reported to local Malagasy authorities through the Joint Rescue Coordination Center (JRCC) Antananarivo. One female occupant of the stricken boat also contacted relatives ashore who dispatched two boats to escort the distressed vessel ashore.

In MT Seychelles Paradise’s bid to offer as much assistance as it could, the on board Oiler of the tanker, Mr Claudio Monthy also managed to fix the outboard engine of the stricken boat which allowed them to begin to make their way back on their own to meet up with the other two escort boats presumed to be on the way. Captain Mondon said the individuals expressed appreciation for the assistance received and left in good spirits.

Seychelles Petroleum Company through its Shipping Department commended the crew on board for their pro-activeness and efforts in order to ensure protocols are adhered while assisting in a rescue operation. They added that it could indeed have been a Seychellois vessel in the same situation.
