RMCD Special Voluntary Disclosure & Amnesty Program (VA)

Background of VA

Under the proposed indirect tax amnesty program, taxpayers will be encouraged to voluntarily disclose underpaid or unpaid indirect taxes arising from errors or mistakes made in indirect tax filings or submissions, in exchange for reduced penalties.

Taxpayers who have failed to register and comply with indirect tax filing requirements are also expected to be eligible for the VA.

Key summary of VA

Special Voluntary Disclosure and Amnesty Program (VA) will be implemented with effect from 1 January 2022.

The VA program will be introduced in two (2) phases with penalty remission (with full payment during the said period) :

  • 1 January 2022 to 30 June 2022 : 100% penalty remission

  • 1 July 2022 to 30 September 2022 : 50% penalty remission

What is VA?

The VA program will involve two (2) distinct programs :

1. Voluntary disclosure program : Taxpayers can voluntarily disclose any unpaid or under-reported indirect tax/duty not known or discovered by RMCD under this program.

2. Amnesty program – Taxpayers with any outstanding Bill of Demand (“BOD”) or who have been audited by the RMCD Compliance Division and received audit findings on non-compliance areas can enjoy penalty and tax/duty remissions under this program.

The VA program will cover all indirect taxes administered by RMCD, including Sales Tax, Service Tax, GST, Tourism Tax, Departure Levy, Import Duty, Export Duty and Excise Duty.

Good faith

Voluntary disclosure submitted in good faith will be accepted. No audit will be conducted on the activities and periods involved.

Once the VA period is over, RMDC will enhance enforcement with hefty penalties.
