Notes: ‡ The abolishment of particular tax expenditure would not necessarily yield the full tax revenue shown in the table. Discrepancies due to rounding. The

standard approach adopted was to measure each tax expenditure in isolation i.e. ascertaining the cost of an individual expenditure with the assumption that all other tax expenditures remained in place. Moreover, it is inaccurate to simply aggregate the individual tax expenditure figures. Estimates are for the respective calendar years. “Reported Net Tax” or Net Tax Payable is essentially, the total amount of tax that the taxpayers are required to pay over to the Revenue (i.e. when the value is positive) or the total amount of tax owed to the taxpayers by the Revenue in the case where there is a credit. Computed tax expenditures and reported net tax amounts based on available returns data.

Amortization on the external side was relatively in line with budget. However, on the domestic

front, principal payments were $3,726.0mn higher than planned reflecting the execution of a

liability management operation to buy back a nominal amount of near term debt instruments.

External amortization when compared to last year shows a significant decrease and this is due to

the transaction for the PetroCaribe Debt buy-back in July of 2015.

Public Debt

Jamaica’s total debt stood at $2,113,413.0mn at the end of July 2016. This represents a 2.2%

increase over the March 2016 stock. The Domestic debt stock is valued at $824,998.9mn (or

39.0% of total stock) and the External stock amounted to $1,288,414.1mn (61.0% of total stock).

This change in the external stock was largely influenced by the depreciation of the Jamaica dollar.

The change in the domestic stock was due mainly to (i) the addition of $6.0bn to the stock from

the reopening of a fixed rate instrument as well as (ii) depreciation which added $3.0bn to the US

dollar denominated instruments in the domestic portfolio.

SELF-FINANCING PUBLIC BODIES

SELF-FINANCING PUBLIC BODIES - FY 2015/16

The Overall Balance1 of sixty-five Self-financing Public Bodies (SFPBs) as approved by Parliament for FY 2015/16 was a surplus of $7,875mn. Total revenues of the group of SFPBs were budgeted at $409,162 mn from which a current balance of $58,214mn was expected.

1 The Overall Balance reflects the financing of a PB; increase or decrease in use of credit or improvement in cash deposits.
