Mount Olivet Boys’ Home Embarking On Herbal Teas Project

Published:Tuesday | April 17, 2018 | 12:00 AM

The Mount Olivet Boys’ Home is poised to establish a herb farm, following the donation of plants and a proposal for purchase of the harvest by local tea manufacturer, Perishables Jamaica Limited (PJL).

“We’re planting the seed and will watch it grow, and reap and create a good herb farm that we can build a long-term business relationship from. We do this on an ongoing basis across Jamaica,” PJL managing director, Norman Wright, said.

Wright, who handed over rosemary and peppermint plants to the Home recently, was upbeat about the prospects of the project and informed that the company buys herbs from farmers, and “based on our knowledge of the environment here at Mount Olivet, they will prosper here”.

Should Freelancers File Taxes in Jamaica? February 3, 2016

Posted by utechalumni in Alumni in Business, JOB VACANCIES, Money Management, Professional Development.
Tags: , , , , ,
add a comment

Per our Tax Administration Department the understanding is that Freelance persons are essentially persons earning income (from any source) while living in Jamaica, although they do not have a registered business. They should therefore declare their income. For all income earners in Jamaica whose income falls below the tax threshold of $592,800, no taxes will be applied. If an income earner earns above $592,800 for the year, then the threshold is subtracted from the total earned, and tax will only be applied to the difference. (more…)
