Bahamas Hotel & Tourism Association

Who We Are

The tourism industry plays a most important role in the Bahamian economy and the hotel sector makes a major contribution in this effort. The Bahamas Hotel Association (BHA) represents the interests of the country's leading hotels and a large allied membership of companies that support the industry.

We have created this Web site to inform the public and prospective members about the BHA and to enhance the organisation by taking advantage of the many community features of the Internet.


BHTA Urging Businesses to Register for VAT Now to Avoid Problems


Tourism-related businesses are being urged to become VAT registered now to avoid potential problems by waiting until the November 30th deadline.

The Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association cautioned businesses during recent VAT readiness workshops in Bimini, Cat Island, Long Island, Exuma and Abaco to avoid the mass rush anticipated by delaying registration.
