All tax payers must register for TAMIS

All tax payers must register for TAMIS
04 Oct

All Barbadian tax payers are being urged to re-register online at their earliest opportunity, using the Barbados Revenue Authority's new TAMIS, or Tax Administration Management Information System online portal.

The appeal was made by officials from the BRA Thursday, as they rolled out phase two of the TAMIS system, which now replaces the system that individual tax payers would have used up to April this year when they last filed.

The BRA is therefore urging all taxpayers to register in TAMIS in order to file their 2018 income tax returns next year, and to receive any related refunds.

Project manager for TAMIS, Junior Dottin outlined some of the important things tax payers would need to know about the new system.


Mr. Dottin explains the TIN or Tax Identification Number will be randomly generated for each taxpayers once they complete their TAMIS registration.

He adds that another important step then needs to be completed by taxpayers who are employed.

They must give their TIN numbers to their employers to enable those employers to upload their PAYE information to the BRA on a monthly basis, and for tax filing purposes.

Meanwhile BRA officials say a public sensitisation campaign will be rolled out in the coming weeks, to assist any taxpayers who may be experiencing challenges with the new registration.
