IRD- Deadlines Extended To April 30th Are Due On May 4th

PR- The Inland Revenue Division of the Ministry of Finance wishes to advise taxpayers that the filing and payment of taxes previously announced as being extended to April 30th are now due on May 4th, 2020. 

This is warranted since April 30th falls on a lockdown or non-working day as per the COVID-19 regulations and Friday 1st May is a public holiday (Labour Day). As per tax payment and filing protocols, whenever a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday the next working day will be the due date for payment and or filing. 

The taxes due on May 4th, 2020 are Income Tax (Personal/Individual and Corporation) and Annual Stamp Tax (AST) for the 2019 tax period which was due on March 30th and 31st respectively. Pay as You Earn (PAYE) and Gaming Tax which were due on April 7th and 10th respectively are now also due on May 4th, 2020. 

The Inland Revenue Division encourages all to stay safe and continue to follow the guidelines of the Ministry of Health on COVID-19. 

Please be guided accordingly.
