Deadline for filing BPT Return for 2012 and making final payment

A large number of number of taxpayers, whose deadline for filing BPT return for 2012 and making their final payment fell on 30 June 2013, have filed their BPT returns and made the respective payment. Today is the deadline for filing BPT Return for 2012 and making final payment for those whose accounting period ended on 31 December 2012. The amount to be paid as the final BPT payment is the tax payable for the year minus the first and second interim payments made for 2012 and any excess tax paid for the tax year 2011.

The MIRA has collected over 1400 returns just today and has set up temporary counters to accommodate the large number of taxpayers who showed up to file their returns and make their final payment. These counters have been set up since day before yesterday to provide faster service to the taxpayers.

In addition to BPT, today is also the deadline for filing GST return and paying GST for May 2013, for those taxpayers who file their GST returns on a monthly basis.
