The Barbados Revenue Authority is asking persons who are renewing private vehicle registrations to use the drop box option, in an effort to reduce the lines in their offices.
The Authority’s Manager, Communications & PR, Carolyn Williams-Gayle, shared that this option would require persons to submit their proof of insurance coverage (cover note or certificate of insurance) and contact information in a sealed envelope before dropping it into the boxes provided.
“The drop boxes are cleared twice daily. So once the box has been cleared transactions will be processed for discs and stickers to be allocated. Persons will be contacted to collect or to resolve any issues encountered. Persons who are registering vehicles for the first time must go to a cashier to have these transactions processed,” she explained.
Williams-Gayle also noted that what should have been a simple non-cash process was being prolonged for two reasons.
