MIRA publishes names of defaulting taxpayers of the first quarter of 2017

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 1st quarter of 2017. 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 January - March 2017.

Names of 112 taxpayers have not filed their returns nor made their GST payments and have been published on MIRA’s website. This includes 99 names of taxpayers in the General Sector and 22 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.
