Appliance Traders Limited (ATL), one of Jamaica’s top electronics and industrial retailer, has announced 30 days of General Consumption Tax (GCT)-free shopping on selected items throughout the month of June.
The move comes as ATL responds to the government’s revenue measures for fiscal year 2012-2013 which see GCT being imposed across several sectors.
“With rising concerns about the new GCT regulations and how it will impact living and energy costs, consumers are on the aggressive hunt for value and relief so ATL is offering GCT rollback on some of our products,” a release quoted Assistant Deputy Chairman of ATL, Ian Neita as saying.
The move is aimed at offering some relief to consumers at this time.
“In addition to the GCT rollback specials, ATL also offers a range of energy efficient products including our Inverter lines which saves up to 60 per cent on energy costs,” Neita said.
The GCT rollback campaign is being instituted at all four branches of ATL in Kingston, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay starting tomorrow, June 1.
It will incorporate deals across most product categories including premium brands such as Panasonic, Whirlpool, Prizm, Hoshizaki and DAB.
