Important change on Custom Taxes Numbers

CT (Custom Taxes) Number become TIN (Tax Identification Number)

On January 1, 2020, a new Tax Administration ACT (TAA) entered into force.

As a result of this new law, the CT (Custom Taxes) number becomes the TIN (Tax Identification Number).

This year 2020-2021 is considered by the Inland Revenue Office as a year of transition.

The taxpayers are required to change their receipts or tax invoice to indicate TIN on the document where it must appear to replace CT. The tax administration office gives until the end of the year to comply with this change.

From 1 January 2021, if a taxpayer does not include the word TIN on their receipts or invoices, they could be penalised by the Inland Revenue Office.
