Tax Update


The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) is informing taxpayers and the business community that it has opened a Voluntary Compliance Window (VCW) for a period of six months starting from 8th April, 2020 to 31st October 2020.

 The window will allow taxpayers with arrears and those who have not been tax compliant to settle their tax obligations without paying penalty, interest or any charges.
The main objectives of the VCW are to provide relief to business people due to huge negative impact Covid-19 has on the economy and businesses in the country and Increase voluntary tax compliance among business people

One can apply by completing a VCW Application form that can be accessed from the MRA website www.mra.mw. Completed forms can be uploaded on to the web site or emailed to vcw@mra.mw. Taxpayers can also send the completed form through WhatsApp to 0997 222 835 or 0997 222 836.

Therefore, all businesses, corporate organizations and individuals are eligible to apply as long as they are not registered with MRA yet but have transactions that were supposed to be taxed but were not or have transactions that are supposed to be taxed but are not being taxed.

Businesses and individuals who are registered but not filing tax return(s) and not paying taxes due, registered but filing incorrect returns, registered and filing tax return(s) but became non-compliant by hiding some transactions are also eligible to apply.

Furthermore, taxpayers who had been filing tax returns and assessed for tax but have tax arrears, except those who have made payment arrangement with MRA, are also eligible to apply.

Taxpayers who had not been declaring imports or smuggling and those who had been misclassifying or under-declaring of importation for duty purposes are eligible to apply. The Authority is therefore encouraging all taxpayers and businesses to take advantage of the window to clear their tax arrears while the window is open.
