Malawi employees to have taxpayer identification number — MRA

Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) says all employees in the country will each have a taxpayer identification number (TPIN) to enable them monitor the status of their income tax remittance.

Kapoloma: Msonkho Online will provide more real time transactions

In an interview with Nyasa Times, MRA Head of Corporate Affairs, Steven Kapoloma said the coming in of Msonkho Online, an integrated tax administration system, will enable swift system log-in by taxpayers to electronically transact with MRA.

He said provision of the TPIN to all employees will clear out some administrative issues and empower employees to verify with MRA whether their taxes have been paid.

Kapoloma has since appealed to all taxpayers with registration numbers to update their information through the Know Your Customer (KYC) to access the Msonkho Online platform.

“All clients need to update their KYC and every employer must register their employees and present to the authority their workers National Identification Cards. These will enable MRA to provide every employee a taxpayer identification number and access the online system and observe their Pay as you earn (Paye) proceedings,” Kapoloma said.

Several workers have since commended the move stressing that they look forward to view reports if indeed taxes deducted on their salaries are paid to MRA.

MRA says piloting of Msonkho Online starts this week on January 16 in Blantyre and Mzuzu.

Msonkho Online is touted to enhance tax compliance as it will enable taxpayers to register for tax, file returns, pay taxes and access tax services online at any time.

MRA indicates that the main objective of implementing Msonkho Online is to enhance efficiency and effectiveness in tax compliance management and taxpayer service management by improving and automating business processes.

Really? I think you can fatten your tax purses if DPP gurus, including Muli, paid their tax dues.

Do you want to collect more to fund APM’s one kilometre convoy? The source of the aleged brines to judges to prolong DPP rule is, by the way, our taxes.

Next Kapoloma will tell us you will need a Tax Clearance Certificate to drive on the roads of Malawi.

Instead of registering employees, why don’t you start registering landlords first. Most landlords are not registered and pay no tax on rental incom. MRA treats rental income as if it is exempt from tax. If they registered every landlord in the towns and cities, MRA can get more income tax money than from employee paye. MRA, you are targeting the wrong group here

You must be very stupid. Landlords already pay city rates and you want your DPP tippex government to take more from landlords? Should we get punished just because we’re better than you idiot???
