HLB is a registered tax agent in Fiji. We can help you better understand the relevant tax policies and incentives that are available and how best they can be best utilised. In addition, we can ensure that you meet your tax obligations on time and in a tax compliant manner.
How we can help
There are a multitude of tax incentives for the benefit of businesses and investors to grow and develop while legally minimising their tax position. Careful and advance tax planning is strongly advised and our tax team can assist. Note the importance of advance planning because obtaining retrospective tax incentive approvals are hard to secure.
The Fiji Revenue and Customs Services (FRCS) was established under the FRCS Act 1998 is the statutory organisation that is mandated by the Government of Fiji to collect taxes and duties on behalf of the Fijian government.
Being tax compliant is a fundamental part of operating a business in Fiji. At HLB we can ensure:
- All tax returns are submitted correctly and on time;
- All payments that are needed to be made to FRCS are done within the stipulated timeframe given by FRCS and;
- We will also ensure that you and/or your business is paying or is being refunded the correct tax.
A tax compliance certificate (valid for 12 months or until the end of the calendar year) is usually granted to the taxpayer once a taxpayer is cleared for tax compliance purposes.
If you need either a tax compliance certificate or a tax clearance certificate, our tax team at HLB can arrange this for you.
Being audited by the tax office is generally a time consuming and frustrating exercise, which can last months. FRCS, in its bid to curb fraudulent taxpayer behaviour, conducts regular desk and onsite audits to ensure taxpayers are declaring the correct amount of tax that is due.
It is therefore imperative that every taxpayer maintains accurate and detailed records, for at least 7 years, so that any tax audit is dealt with as expeditiously as possible.
At HLB Mann Judd Fiji, we endeavour to assist our clients each year with filing complete tax returns as possible and we gather pertinent information for our files should an audit arise. Our aim is to mitigate the possible problems facing clients before any audit is requested. We believe that is always prudent to ensure that all your tax records are in order.
