The Chamber followed a robust consultative process in the generating submissions for National Budget 2018. The Chamber proposals for National Budget were two part.
In formulating the proposals in Part A of the submissions, the Ceylon Chamber had a series of consultations spanning a period of one week with every sector represented under the Chamber. Participation was from individual members relevant to that sector as well as trade associations and councils pertaining to that sector. These proposals have also been reviewed by the Taxation Steering Committee of the Chamber. Broadly, these proposals take a sectoral view, beyond individual firms requests, and can be considered by the Ministry of Finance as proposals that have sector-wide acknowledgement. Part B of submissions contained proposals from individual member companies of the Ceylon Chamber.
This document contains only part A of the Chamber submissions made to the Ministry of for National Budget 2018.
