The deadline for taxpayers to file their Statement of First Interim payment and settle their first interim payment is 31 July 2013.

A significant number of MIRA staff joined the ‘MIRA Walk’ held on 20 July 2013. A number of important messages were given to the public during this walk, which covered most of the major roads of Male’.
