The Barbados Government has announced that lawmakers will decide whether to increase value-added tax on mobile phone services on December 15.

Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Christopher Sinckler said that, from January 2016, the tax would be raised from 17.5 percent to 22 percent, if Parliament approves the plans.

The measure was first announced by Sinckler in the 2015 Budget.
