Customs Agency explains new Charities Act to Diaspora
The Jamaica Customs Agency says it has been actively engaging members of the Diaspora to explain the new procedures and requirements under the Charities Act.
The legislation regulates all charitable bodies, intending to or already doing business in Jamaica.
It provides an institutional and legal framework for the governance of these organisations, bringing more transparency and accountability to their operations.
The Act is a key requirement under the Extended Fund Facility with the International Monetary Fund.
