Nassau, Bahamas - The Department of Inland Revenue (CRA) reminds the public that fines and penalties are now being imposed as a result of the July 2015 amendment to the Business Licence Act.

The department also reminds the public that the deadline for filing business licence renewal applications is January 31st and the deadline for the payment of taxes is March 31st.

Penalties for late filing and payment will be imposed as follows:
