Revenue up by $92 million in 6-months report
Government revenue shows strong performance in first 6-months, based on provisional data from the latest budget performance report. Compared to the same period last year, the Government took in $91.8 million in additional revenue, primarily from tax receipts, despite the loss in collections from the islands affected by Hurricane Dorian. However, the initial relief and restoration efforts following the Hurricane had a significant impact on the overall performance, leading to a marginal widening in the fiscal deficit.
