Bahamas Ecommerce Law and Taxation

There is no income, purchase or sales tax in the Bahamas. Having no experience collecting taxes, collecting revenues from e-transactions becomes that much more difficult for the Bahamas. Additionally, the Bahamas is not a signatory to any double tax treaty with other country, thus allowing the widespread exploitation of the Bahaman system by foreigners. There is no direct personal or corporate taxation in the Bahamas, making it a pure tax haven. According to one survey, it is estimated that there are presently 93,000 Internet users in Bahamas.

There are already many examples of this. It just allows for you, let's say phone, to work without having to download entire programs just to run one application. Instead you pull the data from one of these processing hubs. Many companies already use this technology and it's likely to become increasingly important and continue the way we live our lives and do business.

A web application requires a team of people steered by common strategies and goals using a set of tools to generate design and code. However before beginning the development of the application, it is important to do requirements engineering. It is an important step in the development of a web application because the end result is entirely dependent upon the way the requirements are defined.
