Taxes to be introduced when People’s Majlis passes Taxation Law

Taxes to be introduced when People’s Majlis passes Taxation Law

Miadhu News:
President Mohamed Nasheed has said that the government would start taking taxes as soon as the People’s Majlis passes the bills on taxation of trading profits.

The President told so at a press conference held at Colombo Hilton Hotel during his State Visit to Sri-Lanka, when asked by Miadhu News whether the government asked for assistance from Sri Lanka in training staff as Sri-Lanka is re-known for creating highly professional accountants, and because the Maldivian government lacks the required staff to oversee taxation, as the government has included 225 million from corporate tax as revenue in the 2009 budget.

Responding to the question, President Nasheed said that his State Visit would be of assistance to it, and that talks have been carried out with the Tax School and Civil School. He also said that detailed discussions have been held towards nurturing credible staff and assistances towards temporarily solving the problems. He said that therefore the government would be prepared to start levying taxes by the time the People’s Majlis passes the Law on Taxation. But he added that there would be difficulties and problematic issues in starting taxation. “It cannot be done perfectly when starting. Assistance can be obtained from experts.” President Nasheed said.

The Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Finance, Ismail Shafeeu, has recently stated that taxation cannot be introduced this year as Inland Revenue lacks a qualified accountant who could undertake the task of taxation.

NEVER LICK ANOTHER ENVELOPE AGAIN.

Dont Lick Envelope close….

One day a girl licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very day the lady found a cut on her tongue. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue. She went to the doctor, and they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was not sore or anything. A couple of days later, her tongue started to swell more, and it began to get really sore, so sore, that she could not eat. She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done. The doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live cockroach crawled out!!!!

There were cockroach eggs on the seal of the envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because of her saliva. It was warm and moist…

This is a true story reported on CNN.

Hey, I used to work in an envelope factory. You wouldn’t believe the….things that float around in those gum applicator trays. I haven’t licked an envelope for years!” I used to work for a print shop (32 years ago) and we were told NEVER to lick the envelopes. I never understood why until I had to go into storage and pull out 2500 envelopes that were already printed and saw several squads of cockroaches roaming around inside a couple of boxes with eggs everywhere. They eat the glue on the envelopes.
