Green Tax from tourist guesthouses commences

Green Tax from tourists who stay in tourist guesthouses commenced on 1 October 2016, and is payable at the rate of 3 United States Dollars per day of stay, MIRA has said.

Prior to the commencement of Green Tax from guesthouses, MIRA had conducted an extensive awareness campaign aimed at tourist guesthouses to give them necessary information and make them ready for collection of Green Tax. The campaign included Green Tax Seminars for guesthouse operators and atoll trips covering most of the guesthouses in atolls.

MIRA also has said that the deadline for filing the monthly Green Tax Return and making the payment would be the 28th of the following month
