Re: The Deals Thread (Prime Day, Black Friday, Sales)

Not really a prime day deal post, but has anyone ever purchased a renewed laptop or desktop from Amazon. I see quite a few available in HP and Dell, especially business PCs, but not sure on whether its a risk to purchase. Any thoughts?

Re: Ministers enjoy tax exemptions on cars

You can tell that just by looking at that picture? Or you know or have seen the car?

Re: T&T OFFICIAL New Vehicle Prices & Discussion Thread

Fwiw, a few years ago I bought a second hand fortuner. I never liked fortuner prior to that but out of necessity, I bought it. I now have it for 4 years and this vehicle is 7 years old. And believe when I say, that vehicle has grown on me and the wife. So much so that we'll quicker part with our 201...

Re: T&T Budget 2020 is on October 5th

I am still reeling in agony from the increase in water rates, electricity rates, LPG subsidy removal and increase in personal income tax.

Waw. That was rough.

Next year, the MoF need to remove all duties and VAT on super glue and stitches so all the naysayers can seal their mouths shut.

Whole sale prices to remain the same. LPG suppliers can then set their markup. This is what I have understood was said. I stand corrected.

Once it's national insurance, it applies to all. The Minister says they will look to extend the retirement age to 65. ** That is fr...
