MIRA collects MVR 2.13 billion as revenue in January

MIRA collected MVR 2.13 billion in January 2019. This amount is 2.2% more than the amount forecasted for January 2019.

The reason for the increase in revenue collected compared to the forecast is because of the increment of collection from Lease Period Extension Fee and the increase in the collection of TGST due to the 5.4% increment in tourist arrivals compared to December 2017.

The greatest share of the revenue collected for January 2019 was from BPT with MVR 881.56 million or 41.4% of total revenue. The second largest contributor was GST (MVR 799.24 million or 37.5%). Other significant contributors include Green Tax (MVR 78.26 million or 3.7%), Lease Period Extension Fee (MVR 76.5 million or 3.6%), Airport Development Fee (MVR 59.62 million or 2.8%) and other taxes and fees (MVR 235.48 or 11.1%).

Out of the revenue collected in January 2019, USD 67.8 million constitutes the dollar collection.
