While the government has imposed severe penalties and fines for tax offenders, Fijians need to understand the importance of Voluntary Tax Compliance and our civic duty of paying taxes.
FRCA CEO Visvanath Das says they’re committed to implement processes for ease of doing business in Fiji however this comes with much trust and honesty on the part of businesses to be voluntarily important.
Das adds non-compliant taxpayers will face the full brunt of the law.
He says the 2017/2018 National Budget has seen amendments to the penalty
All the penalties in relation to Tax Evasion has increased together with the imprisonment term which is now 10 years.
Das says the FRCA is determined to prosecute all those taxpayers who are evading taxes.
Fijians are being encouraged that if you have evidence of a business or taxpayer committing Tax or Customs fraud, or any unprofessional conduct by
FRCA officers, you are encouraged to report through FRCA’s 24/7 – FRCA Whistle blower line – 3243222 or email directly to [email protected]
This will potentially lead you to receive a monetary reward as a whistle blower.
