Deadline for submission of 2nd Interim payment for year 2013 approaches

The MIRA advises all taxpayers to file their Statement of Interim Payment for 2013 and pay the second interim payment ahead of the deadline of 31 January 2014.

All taxpayer who have to file a BPT return are liable to file their statement of interim payment.  Individuals who make a taxable profit exceeding Rufiyaa 500,000/- in a given tax year, and those who earn more than Rufiyaa 750,000/- as their total income have to file BPT returns. All  other persons conducting business have to file BPT return, regardless of their income. Those who have not filed their First Statement of Interim Payment for 2013 are advised to file them as soon as possible.

Since the last week of January is expected to be a busy week at MIRA, with lots of taxpayers seeking service, taxpayers are advised to be mindful of this and to pay their taxes well ahead of the deadline.
