MIRA publishes names of defaulting taxpayers of the fourth quarter of 2016

Under the Policy on Disclosure of Non-compliant GST Registered Persons, MIRA has published the names of taxpayers who have not filed their GST returns nor paid their GST for the 4th quarter of 2016. The list published on MIRA’s website includes the names of those in the atolls who have not filed their return nor paid their GST for the period from October - December 2016.

Names of 63 taxpayers have not filed their returns nor made their GST payments and have been published on MIRA’s website. This includes 53 names of taxpayers in the General Sector and 10 names of taxpayers in the Tourism Sector.

Before the publishing of the names, these taxpayers have been contacted several times and informed of the penalties they might face if they do not file their returns and pay their GST. MIRA has also sent SMS to these taxpayers and visited the premises of those they were unreachable via phone.

This list is also set to be published in the Gazette.
