Penalty for late filling : The Inland Revenue Board is to impose penalties ranging from 20% to 35% of gross tax payable (before deduction of the tax paid by the employer and/or tax instalments) for the late filing of tax returns. Failure to remit the balance of tax payable by the due date will also attract another penalty of 10%. For any balance unpaid after 60 days, a further 5% penalty will be imposed. Hence, a gentle reminder to all tax payers, file in your tax return on time and make payments to IRD on time to avoid unnecessary imposition of penalties.
