The department called on merchants, industrialists and service providers to take the initiative to register voluntarily in the general sales tax taxpayers network as soon as they reach the registration threshold, based on the principle of tax compliance and to avoid being exposed to fines, additions and legal violations.
It is noteworthy that the sales tax registration threshold for the service sector is (30) thousand dinars, and everyone whose total revenues reach (30) thousand dinars within 12 consecutive months, or any part of it, must take the initiative to register in the network of general sales taxpayers.
While the registration threshold for the commercial and industrial sectors is (75) thousand dinars, and everyone whose total sales reach (75) thousand dinars within 12 months or any part of it must take the initiative to register in the general sales tax taxpayers network.
The department calls on all those who reach the registration threshold to voluntarily take the initiative to register in the network of general sales taxpayers by visiting the nearest directorate or center instead of being obligatory registered by the department , in order to avoid exposure to legal procedures that are taken against those who fail to register in the general sales tax network.
They stated that the department’s field survey teams are doing some tours to the merchants, industrialists, service providers and professionals in order to assure the extent of commitment of business owners from merchants, service providers and industrialists to registering in the network of taxpayers of the general sales tax from those who are not registered subject to the general sales tax and whose sales exceed the registration threshold.
The field survey is a continuation of the surveys carried out by the department from time to time to identify the obligated taxpayers who are not registered to study their conditions, to reduce the phenomenon of tax evasion and to put in place appropriate mechanisms to deal with them.
Also, the Directorate of Information in the department handles the processing of data and information on the department's system, through which it shows the taxpayers who have reached the registration threshold and those who have failed to review the department and register voluntarily.
The Department extends its thanks to the taxpayers who took the initiative to voluntarily register in the General Sales Tax Taxpayers Network.
