Tax Compliance Certificate To Be Introduced 

August 12th , 2015 (Nassau, Bahamas) – The Department of Inland Revenue advises the public of the introduction of a new Tax Compliance Certificate. 

The Tax Compliance Certificate will be issued to taxpayers who are current with their tax obligations to the government. These obligations include filing tax returns and paying the assessed taxes. 

The certificate is required for individuals who: 

  • Wish to tender for the award of a contract with the government or a public body, 
  • Wish to collect monies for services rendered under a contract awarded by the government or a public body 
  • Wish to register ownership or change ownership of a taxable good; 
  • Receive concession (allowances) under the provisions of legislation 

The certificate will be valid for a period of one month or six months, depending on the value of the contract.

 Information about the Tax Compliance Certificate can be found in the Financial Administration and Audit (Amendment) Act 2015 Part IIB (of Section 19i). 

NB: The public should be aware that a Tax Compliance Certificate will not limit the execution of audits and will not rule out taxes that are owed to the Government.
