Christopher Zacca, the president of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica, Christopher Zacca says the impending tax on withdrawals from deposit-taking institutions is ill-advised.



In a post on Twitter last night, Zacca said the tax will discourage individuals from joining the formal banking system.











He says the tax comes at a time when the economy is under pressure and will put a higher cost on transactions.



The PSOJ president says the move will be a hindrance to growth.
