Payment Problems

Important Actions You Should Take


Making contact with IRD, VAT Section is the most important action you should take but you should also do the following as a matter of urgency:

  • File your VAT return on time to avoid additional financial penalties.
  • The penalty and interest is calculated on the amount still outstanding at the due date, so even if you cannot pay the full amount on time, pay as much as you can manage. This will reduce the penalty and could even stop it altogether.

To avoid getting into this situation again, keep proper books and records at all times and start preparing you VAT Return before the due date.

Failing to pay your VAT due on time is a very serious matter.  It is not just a question of being charged interest. You could face other  penalties and court action.
