Import Duty and Tax Free Building in the Bahamas will Expire in June 2017

This Topsider prefab home was built on the island of South Andros in the Bahamas. Topsider has been shipping prefab homes to the Bahamas since the 1960s.


In 2008, the Bahamian Parliament voted to make select islands Import Duty and Tax Free for new home construction.  This incentive, intended to stimulate jobs through tourism and construction, expires in June 2017.  Exempted islands include: Andros, Cat Island, San Salvador, Long Island, Rum Cay, Sweetings and Water Cays (Grand Bahamas), Grand Cay and Moores Island (Abaco), Crooked Island, Long Cay, Acklins, Ragged Island and Cays, Current Island (Eleuthera), Mayaguana, Inagua and Exuma.  This exemption amounts to saving of as much as 35% on Import Duty and 10% additional Tax on the value of imported building materials.  If you intend to beat the June 2017 deadline and take advantage of the Import Duty and Tax Exemptions, getting started now is critical.  Builders are already booking jobs into 2017 and by year-end 2016, finding a builder at any price may be a challenge.

 

Topsider’s unique Post & Beam, panelized building system is ideal for remote Bahamian building locations.  Our services include in-house design, consulting engineering for local building permits, builder recruitment, shipping logistics and job-site builder coordination.  Most importantly, Topsider Homes’ high quality prefab house structures and panels are easily and quickly assembled.  (Click HERE to watch the simple assembly sequence of a short stilt-pier home.)

Prefabricated House Kits Shipped Internationally Since 1968

Prefabricated House Kits Export Shipping by Topsider Homes

Topsider Homes has custom designed and export shipped prefabricated home kits internationally since 1968. With thousands of our homes shipped worldwide, no prefab house kit company has Topsider's experience or expertise in building custom homes in foreign destinations and remote locations. Our "single source" approach for all building materials and interior furnishings helps ensure a quality home with fewer delays and cost-overruns.

Building in many parts of the world requires the importation of prefab houses and building materials because local materials and/or skilled labor for stick building are simply not available, or are not of a consistent quality.  Using Topsider’s building system assures high quality and ease of assembly, and combined with Topsider’s many services, e.g., taking the technical lead for permits and approvals, builder recruitment, project logistics and coordination, clients worldwide find Topsider’s building solution ideal.

Prefabricated House Kits Container Ship Export

For foreign destinations with deep-water ports, Topsider prefab house kits are container shipped on cargo ships in truck-size containers for easy transportation to the building site.

  

Whether you want to build on an Alpine mountainside or a tropical beach in the Cayman Islands or Malaysia, Topsider Homes can be built on practically any terrain because of our nearly unlimited design flexibility and the ease of assembly of our high quality Post & Beam building system.  Each kit home and project is custom designed and specified to meet client budgets and requirements. We work carefully with clients during the design phase, providing construction estimates as things progress so that risks, uncertainties and cost over-runs are minimized once the project gets under way.  And we work with local builders throughout the life of each project, making ourselves available at every step of the way until each home is completed. It’s all part of our dedication to seeing building projects through from beginning to end.

Prefabricated House Kits International Shipping

Some extremely remote building sites do not have deep-water ports, so Topsider's kit home components and building materials are 'export packed' and shipped 'break-bulk' on small vessels, often well off major shipping channels.

Prefabricated House Kits Onsite Local Labor

Topsider Homes designs and prefabricates each easy-to-assemble kit house with components and materials that can be built by local laborers, often with limited skills in timber frame construction.

We understand issues ranging from international building codes and foreign exchange transactions to intricate shipping logistics and customs documentation. We know how to export package and ship break-bulk (not in containers) to even the most remote building sites well off normal deep-water shipping channels – and we have equal experience shipping to foreign urban centers in industrialized countries where container shipments are commonplace. Regardless of the foreign destination, we know how to design, ship and see home building projects through.

Uniquely, Topsider offers international clients a one stop single source approach for materials for their new home. We not only provide easy-to-assemble prefabricated building components, but many clients also have us procure and ship interior furnishings and accessories – and in some instances, even kitchen and linen packages. This is particularly helpful for remote sites in Africa, the Caribbean and the South Pacific.
