Berger Paints Jamaica Limited (BRG) Change in Financial Year End

Berger Paints Jamaica Limited (BRG) has advised that at a meeting of the Board of Directors held July 28, 2017, a resolution was passed to change BRG’s existing accounting year end from March 31 to December 31 to coincide with that of their parent company, Ansa McCAL, as this would provide uniformity in their financial reporting.  This proposed change is to take effect as at December 31, 2017.

BRG has also requested approval from the Taxpayer Audit & Assessment Department for the change and as soon as approval is received it will be communicated.

BRG also advised that results for quarter ending September 30, 2017, will be published with required 45 days of that period end while the Audited Financial Results will be submitted within 60 days of the December year end.
