Land developers, like all other clients are required to comply with the requirements of the statutes relating to taxation. This includes the need for submission of tax returns and declarations and payment of the relevant too by the set due dates. Specifically, land developers are required to account for Income Tax and Value Added Tax relating to their operations including the supply or disposal of fixed property. They are also required to account for Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and all other relevant taxes.
Let me express my appreciation for your contributions and efforts in ensuring that every client pays their own fair sham of the taxes due and in ensuring that requirements in the statutes relating to the administration of taxes are complied with. The information that you have submitted will be applied to ensure that the requirements of the statutes are met and will assist ZIMRA in discharging its mandate.
