Companies registered or conducting business in Guyana, are required by law to declare all income earned from the previous year(s). The declaration must be made in a Return/form submitted to the Guyana Revenue Authority at a prescribed date each year.
Companies are encouraged to fill in their Corporation Tax Return electronically. The various calculations are done automatically for you. Simply enter the income and allowances, and your tax will be automatically calculated. Ensure that the accompanying schedules follow the format provided in the Return – note that there were some changes made to reflect the new requirements of Commercial and Non-Commercial activities.
For companies that are engaged in either Commercial or Non-Commercial activities, use only the column that is applicable. For companies that are engaged in both Commercial and Non-Commercial activities, then use both columns. There is a new schedule (Schedule N) that requires you to describe those expenses that are shared between Commercial and Non-Commercial activities.
There are two ways a company can file its Corporation Tax Return:
Before submitting your Return electronically, you must have an eServices account. To submit a Return, simply login to your account and, via the Create eServices Form, navigate to Corporation Tax Return, fill in the Return, upload the relevant documents, and then submit. You will receive an email once the Return was successfully submitted to the GRA.
Note: If the Return is submitted electronically via the eServices, a manual (paper) submission is not required. However, please ensure that all the required supporting documents are uploaded as part of the submission.
