Here is some information which I have posted in Wikipedia. The activity of writing in Wikipedia restarted today with some reading and attempting to create sections in the post, without losing links and such. 

"The Double Taxation Relief (CARICOM) Treaty

On July 6, 1994 at Sherbourne Conference Centre, St. Michael, Barbados,  as a representative of the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, then (James Mitchell, who was subsequently knighted) signed the Double Taxation Relief (CARICOM) Treaties.

There were seven other signatories to the agreement on that day. The countries which were represented were: Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago. 

An eight country signed the agreement on August 19, 2016, Guyana. 

This treaty covered taxes, residence, tax jurisdictions, capital gains, business profits, interest, dividends, royalties and other areas."

Click on the  following link if you are interested in reading more on the country or to access the links which have been included in the post.
P.S. At this time, this article is a work in progress for me, as I would like to add information to it, however at this time, I would need to revisit the layout of the post, get into the style of the writing so that the information and options may be developed. P.S. The information which was posted on Grenada was much more expansive and there is still a lot of information to research and enter into the Encyclopedia.

I visited the island of St. Vincent during the period 2009 -2010 as part of a work assignment. I was there for about three days when I had to leave for another island. I was struck by the availability of the Ferry Service which went to the different islands, the peace of downtown Kingstown on a Sunday, the similarity in the type of food between Trinidad and St. Vincent and the pavements were similar in style.
