The accounts of a limited company shall be audited by a Certified Public Accountant before submitting to the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) together with an auditor’s report and Profit Tax Return.

Once the Profit Tax Return is submitted to the IRD, a notification of tax payable will be issued by the IRD officer to the limited company. The company shall then pay the tax before the due date.

The Employer Return shall be submitted to the IRD disregarding the nationality of the staff as long as his/her yearly income exceeds $100,000.- in th financial period of 1st April to 31st March.

No. The notification of “no Profit Tax Return to the company ” only means that there will be no Profit Tax Return issued actively from the IRD. However, it is the responsibility of the limited company to apply for the Profit Tax Return and submit it to the IRD with an Audited Account whenever a profit is recorded in the business. Therefore, it means that a limited company should prepare its audited account every year.
