Posted: Wednesday, April 1, 2020. 10:28 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) issued a statement today updating on the measures being taken in Belize as it relates to COVID-19.

The BTB says that to alleviate some of the financial burden during these uncertain times, and to possibly assist with the payment of a portion of staff salaries, the BTB will be implementing the following as a part of the COVID-19 relief efforts:

Hoteliers are being asked to submit their Monthly Accommodation Tax Returns (MATRs) and Guest Registration Forms (GRFs) for March via the BTB  Online Portal.

The BTB will automatically apply 100% tax credit for the total taxes assessed for the month of March, essentially resulting in Nil Accommodation Tax Due.

A sample MATR, with the Online Tax Return entry can be found below:

The BTB continues to promote usage of the BTB Online Portal, especially as we continue to practice and promote social distancing as a means of protection against COVID-19.

Stakeholders are encouraged to use the Portal for monthly submissions – it’s convenient, easy to use, and free of charge.

All stakeholders have been registered to use the BTB Online Portal and are encouraged to do so . Should you have any  questions or concerns, or require assistance in using the Portal, kindly contact the BTB at 614-0046 or 635-1793 or email at [email protected]org .

The BTB remains committed to working with stakeholders during this difficult time and encourages all to continue practicing social distancing, proper hand washing, and adhering to all recommendations from the Ministry of Health.
