UK Double Taxation Agreement

GFSB welcomes UK Double Taxation Agreement announcement

The GFSB notes and welcomes the recent announcement of the intention to draw up a Double Taxation Agreement (“DTA”) between Gibraltar and the UK. The GFSB believes that such an agreement would modernise tax arrangements with the UK and simplify matters for those of its members that do business with the UK.

Whilst the details of the final DTA are important, any agreement should encourage trade between Gibraltar and the UK and, as such, the GFSB makes itself available to assist HM Government of Gibraltar with the upcoming process.

PR: Main Street BID

By | News

Main Street BID

Over the last eighteen months, the GFSB has received many complaints from our retail members about worsening trading conditions. It is a well-publicised fact that town centres throughout the world are facing similar difficulties.

With this in mind, the GFSB contracted retail analyst Kerching in 2018. The brief was to conduct a review of Main Street and propose changes to make our town centre a more attractive destination.

One of the key recommendations in the report was to form a Business Improvement District (BID), which could manage and co-ordinate the proposed improvements.

We are delighted to announce that we have now appointed Mosaic, leading experts in this field, who have prepared and managed more than one hundred BIDs throughout the world.

We would like to thank everyone who has participated in the process up to now, especially the Government of Gibraltar, who have shown their commitment and enthusiasm for the benefits that a BID can bring by making a significant financial contribution to get this initiative off the ground.

GFSB spokesperson said, “The Federation looks forward to engaging with all stakeholders – trading bodies, retailers, members of the public and others to make the BID a reality. Our aim is to transform our town centre into a world class destination so that it benefits everyone in Gibraltar, local residents, businesses and visitors alike.  We want everyone to BACK THE BID!”

It offers great value for money, the staff are friendly and helpful and the events they have organised thus far have provided excellent networking opportunities as well as helping us to gain valuable insight into various local industries.”
