Barbadians can again use the Pine location for licensing payments, after a substantial renovation of the facility over the past several months.

The Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) reopened its Pine doors on Monday after an almost eight–month closure to facilitate an upgrade to the infrastructure.

The BRA’s Communications Officer, Erica Lazare, expressed pleasure that the renovation had been completed as the public would finally have access to the Pine branch.

“We are very pleased to have reopened our Pine office, as we have made structural upgrades to improve staff and customer comfort. It is an important geographical location for many Barbadians for their licensing services and will be a welcomed re-addition to our payment centres.

“We know that the temporary relocation to Oistins was a significant adjustment to those persons who were accustomed to using the Pine for their licensing transactions, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their patience over the past several months,” Ms. Lazare said.

With the Pine reopening, the Authority again has its full complement of six payment branches across the island, which will allow for more convenience for the public.

The Treasury Building, Weymouth Corporate Centre, Holetown, Warrens and Oistins locations will continue to take payments for all taxes and licenses.

“We have also made sure that there are card payment facilities available at all of our payment centres.  Our Holetown and Treasury offices are currently opening at 7:30 a.m. to accommodate those persons who want to make payments a bit earlier,” Ms. Lazare said.

The Barbados Licensing Authority’s drivers’ licence card printing centres at the Pine and Oistins locations will remain open as normal.
