Halloween festivities

Halloween season is upon us and as is customary, it will be celebrated in a big way at Sandyport. Security Services will be highly visible during the festivities.

There are a few safety tips we would like for you to keep in mind during this celebration to ensure the festivities are enjoyable for all Residents:

  1. Provide security with a guest list.
  2. Ask guests to state the name of the resident who invited them upon their arrival. Security Services will not be allowing any uninvited persons on to the property.
  3. Children engaging in trick or treating should be accompanied by their parents or guardian and only visit homes with lights on. They will be required to vacate the common property by 10pm.
  4. Ask children to refrain from throwing eggs and avoid using firecrackers near occupied homes.

In conclusion, we wish to assure you that our Security presence will be more visible during the Halloween festivities to further ensure the safety of children.

Registered vessel decals

Boat decal

Owners of registered vessels may collect an identifying decal from Security Services for attachment to the port side. A visible decal will allow Security Services to identify registered vessels and start the access control process. All registered vessels are subject to access control but those bearing the decal will help us to deliver prompter service.


Access control only applies to boats registered with Sandyport Security Services. Unregistered boats may use the canal basin only and are not permitted to moor in the community nor are they required to clear Security Control. All traffic passing through the canal inlet is subject to surveillance.

Registered boats must belong to the property owner or their tenant. Apply for registration with Security Services as follows:

  • Form SC-BR to be completed and submitted together with copies of the following documents:
  • Government ID (Such as Driver’s License or Passport) of the registrant
  • If the boat or property ownership is in a Company name, the share certificate issued by the Company detailing the beneficial owner
  • Boat registration document bearing the registration number of the boat and the owner information
  • Clear photograph of the boat including the registration number (if possible)

Security Services will issue a permit in the form of an ID Card that bears a unique permit number, the vessel registration details and name of the owner. Users of registered boats will be required to stop and present their permit when passing Security Control at the canal inlet. If an attempt is made to remove a registered boat without presenting a valid permit, Security Services will deny egress and notify law enforcement if appropriate. Therefore ensure that the permit is kept safe and apart from the boat whenever it is not in use by authorised persons.

The following policies apply to permits:

  • The expiry date is December 31st annually
  • Holders should report missing permits to Security Services
  • If a boat is sold, return the permit to Security Services for cancellation

Effective January 1, 2014.

Introduction of VAT from January 2015

VAT

We understand that the proposed VAT (Value Added Tax) bill will become effective from January 1, 2015. Under the terms of the bill Sandyport Homeowners Association requires mandatory registration as it does not meet the requirements for exemption.

As a VAT registered entity we will add the tax at the prevailing rate (currently 7.5%) to all charges. As we will be able to recover the VAT paid on purchases, there is no cost burden to the Association. However homeowners should prepare for the addition of VAT to all charges made by the Association.
