GICS :: The Government Integrated Cashiering System
Functional authority and responsibility for cash handling activities is vested in the Accountant General’s Office of the Treasury Department. The Treasury delegates this authority to the Finance Officers of the Sub-Treasuries who in turn delegates this authority to the Cashiers of their Sub-Treasury.
The Government Integrated Cashiering System (GICS), a revenue collection and receipting software system, is the Treasury Department’s official cashiering system.
GICS provides a standard approach to the collection of revenue for the Government of Belize. Its user-friendly cashiering Front-end provides collection and Savings Bank transactions automation. In the Back-end the aggregation of revenue collections and transfer of that data to SmartStream for posting is automated. Its reporting features provides information and data used for monitoring and the reconciling transactions executed via the system and for management consumption. System authentication utilizes Microsoft authentication for the various roles available in GICS such as Cashiering, Supervision and Report Printing.

Meet the Sigtas Team
SIGTAS | Overview
SIGTAS (Standard integrated Government Tax Administration System) is now a legacy application. It has been replaced by a new modern Revenue Management System named “IRIS – Belize.” The historical taxpayer transactions are still required for querying by the Belize Tax Services Department (BTSD). Therefore, the SIGTAS application environment is still being maintained in “Read Only” mode and is accessible to all authorized BTSD officers. The SIGTAS application features being used by BTSD are mainly taxpayer transactions and assessments reports executions.
