BUSINESSES WITH CASH ONLY POLICES
Businesses in St marten are welcomed by our government to conduct under an E.N.V which clearly STATES to follow rules by paying taxes on earnings to the government and then earnings for themselves to make our country successful , we as the country an island give opportunities to foreigners to succeed and as well grow our economy for future . There are businesses who take advantage of this situation by avoiding gross receipt taxes monthly and cheating on yearly turnover taxes by only accepting CASH ONLY from customers, this practice is not fair, it is not illegal yet in twenty-first century majority of citizens along with tourist carry credit cards and debit cards to pay their expenses, purchases and dinners . I think tax authorities should investigate these culprits to pay fines and set rules how a business transacts with their clients. There are food places which I have been disgraced and embarrassed in public by their attitude towards locals.welcome, as certain banks charge a fee to withdraw from ATM which affects our savings from our earnings . I believe there should be a fair practice set in place by not only accepting cash but credit cards, and debit cards as well.Future growth for our country depends on regulations set by tax authorizes they must implement a stronger plan to recover past taxes as well future earnings from businesses such as above establishment, who run strictly only cash policy. These kinds of restaurants exist all over the island starting from Maho to Philips burg.
