The Botswana Unified Revenue Service on 24 April 2020 issued a release updating information about extended due dates for filing tax returns and making tax payments, relief measures in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The due date extensions apply for corporate income tax returns and payments (originally due 30 April 2020), and provide that corporate income tax returns and payments are now due 30 days after the expiration of the lockdown period. The extended due date for corporate income tax returns also applies with regard to transfer pricing documentation (which is filed with the corporate income tax return).
The extended due date for value added tax (VAT) returns and payments (originally due 25 April 2020) is now 14 days after the end of the lockdown period, and the extended due date for employment taxes (including “pay as you earn”) and withholding taxes (originally due 15 April 2020) are also due 14 days after the end of the lockdown period.
