Tax Compliance

Tax Compliance

Under the Self Assessment System (“SAS”), the burden of responsibility has shifted from the Inland Revenue Board to the taxpayer.

Under the Self Assessment System (“SAS”), the burden of responsibility has shifted...

This responsibility brings with it:

  • The increased risk of tax penalties;
  • The need to estimate the taxable position during the financial year with the review to making the appropriate revisions to avoid tax penalties for underestimation; and
  • The need to ascertain whether accounting systems within companies are able to meet the higher demands of SAS.

The onus is on the company to compute its tax liability correctly and pay the correct amount of tax on time. In this respect, the company has to keep abreast of tax developments.

With the shift of the Inland Revenue Board’s role under the SAS, the Inland Revenue Board is placing more emphasis on auditing carried out by its officers to ensure voluntary tax compliance by taxpayers.
