Nassau, Bahamas - The Department of Inland Revenue encourages business owners to ensure that their Value Added Tax (VAT) returns are filed and paid on time to avoid facing penalties.
The Department is now activating the automatic enforcement of penalties for late returns. Penalties for late filing and late payments are as follows:
- A $100 penalty will apply to credit returns that are filed late.
Administrative Fines can be found in section 16 of the Act and Section 44 of the VAT Regulations.
- Failure to file a VAT return or to pay amounts owed, are both very serious violations which, under the VAT Act and Regulations carry administrative fines of up to $150,000.
Please be reminded that the Department of Inland Revenue (CRA) is now located at the rear of the Shops at Carmichael Plaza, Carmichael Road.
