TRA to enforce tax on professional services

Mr Kiula
Employers hiring expert services on part-timers basis have been asked to remit taxes as stipulated in the country’s taxation regime to increase tax base in which only two per cent of the population pay taxes.

Available statistics from Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) show that only 883,656 taxpayers were registered by August last year, with 17,233 registered for Value Added Tax.

“Employers are legally bound to account for the secondary employments which are subject to taxation, short of that they are to be penalised,” TRA Acting Director for Taxpayer Services and Education Alan Kiula said.

He mentioned some of the professions falling under the category as engineering, accountancy, economics, politics, legal, sociology and medical.

Likewise, he insisted that all gains or profits accrued from secondary employments are legally subject to tax deductions.
