TEVET LEVY

The Authority is reminding all employers that Tevet levy for the year 2018/19 will be due on the 1st July, 2019. Failure to remit the levy by the due date attracts 20% of the unpaid amount.


CUSTOMS & EXCISE

Duty is payable upon importation of goods into Malawi. If goods are imported into the country through transit bond on Transit document 1 (T1) and kept in a temporary store, duty is due within 10 days from the day the goods were deposited in the Temporary Stores. 

Customs duties can also be paid prior to the arrival of goods at the border. MRA further wishes to remind all taxpayers and the business community that it is their obligation and responsibility to settle their tax liabilities on time. Any delay or failure to remit the taxes would result in MRA requesting you to pay the taxes due plus penalties in accordance with the Law. 

Kindly, note that you can submit your tax returns at your nearest Domestic Taxes offices and Customs & Excise stations at Chitipa, Nsanje, Mwanza, Liwonde, Chiponde and Muloza. Please, note that failure to submit a tax return when due is an offence punishable by the VAT Act and the Taxation Act.
