You can now listen to Antigua News articles!

The Prices and Consumer Affairs have reminded all restaurant operators in Antigua and Barbuda, that the prices listed on their menus must include the 17% Antigua Barbuda Sales Tax (ABST).

The Prices and Consumer Affairs have reminded all restaurant operators in Antigua and Barbuda, that the prices listed on their menus must include the 17% Antigua Barbuda Sales Tax (ABST).

Consumers must be informed of the total prices of their meal options before deciding.

Unlike the 10% Service Charge, the ABST should not be added to the customer’s bill, but rather, it should be reflected in the displayed prices, Restaurant operators have been informed.

The Prices and Consumer Affairs also warns that it is important to comply with the rules outlined in Section 57 of the Antigua and Barbuda Sales Tax Act, which prohibits pricing methods that exclude the ABST.

Therefore, restaurant operators are required to make the necessary changes to their menus to ensure that the ABST is included in the displayed prices.
