The Inland Revenue Sports Club was duly registered with the Ministry of Sports in 1984. It was created to:
- Foster a spirit of harmony and goodwill among the staff of the Inland Revenue Department;
- Engage members in sporting activities to encourage comradery and at the same time promote their well being;
- Engage in sporting activities with other Sport Clubs within the Public Service and the wider society.
- To establish and maintain relations with similar regional and international organisations
The games began in 1998 with St. Lucia being the inaugural host. The event was created to foster integration with sister Inland Revenue Departments in the region. To date all countries named above have played host to the games with the exception of Guyana who began participating in 2006.
The five day event is much more than a period of fun and frolic for tax officials. It is also an opportunity to share experience and ideas in an informal setting. In this era of the CARICOM Single market and Economy, member countries are mandated to share resources (including personnel) and undertake harmonization of legislation, particularly in the area of taxation and trade. The Inland Revenue Games is one of the channels to successfully achieve this mandate.
