Effective from date of this notice, the Commissioner will require business owners (if sole trader), the authorized partner (if partnership) and General Manager/Managing Director/Financial Controller (if company), to be the “authorized” contact person for TIMS purposes and will liaise with that authorized person only. We will no longer accept tax agents, accountants, consultants, or resellers of various POS systems, to liaise with the Ministry on specific issues relating to TIMS compliance. This will make it easier for the Ministry to explain direct our requirements to the taxpayer who is also the authorized person as to avoid miscommunication and additional costs to the taxpayer.

8. To our esteemed Businesses that have already installed TIMS and issued fiscal invoices, MCR appreciates and applaud your courage and resilience to comply despite the challenges of many factors beyond your controls. Please continue with your commended voluntarily compliance path and MCR will continue to provide the priority support and assistance that is available at any time.
