NATIONAL REVENUE AUTHORITY
(Income Tax Department)
Public Notice

The National Revenue Authority wishes to remind all businesses and other organizations that they are under obligation in accordance with section 127 of the Income Tax Act 2000 to deliver to their contractors/suppliers a tax withholding certificate or all contracts with a total value exceeding Le 500,000 per month.

The withholding certificate must show:-

-the name and address of each contractor/ supplier
-the amounts paid or payable to each contractor/supplier
-the amount of tax withheld
-date of payment to NRA of withholding taxes and details of the withholding tax receipt (s)

This certificate should be signed by the withholding agent or their legal representative and must contain a representation that the statement is true and correct.

Contractors/suppliers are thereby required to demand from their contractees the withholding tax certificate.

Withholding tax payment advices and or receipts issued other than the NRA’s official receipts are no sufficient evidence to show that tax had been withheld and paid, and therefore, shall not be regarded as a payment of income tax in respect of the taxpayers tax liability.

Withholding agents are also reminded that taxes withheld shall be paid to the Commissioner-General within fifteen days of the end of the month in which they were withheld.

Withholding agent who fails to withhold tax as required by law shall be personally liable to pay the amount of the tax and penalty which has not been so withheld.

NRA reserves the right not to grant credit to any taxpayer whose withholding agent has failed to adhere to the above guidelines.

You have been warned

COMMISSIONER GENERAL
ELECTRICITY HOUSE, SIAKA STEVENS STREET, FREETOWN, SIERRA LEONE
