The Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has called on people that have not yet registered under the mandatory Tax Payers Identification Number (TPIN) registration process to quickly do.

ZRA Public Relations Manager Topsy Sikalinda said despite reaching the June 30th 2019 deadline, people are still welcome to register at ZRA offices.

Mr Sikalinda told ZANIS in an interview in Lusaka today that the TPIN registration has continued because some members of the public have not yet registered, adding that it is mandatory for them to do so because the service is a daily requirement especially when processing important documents.

He however underscored that as of June 30th, 2019 at least 100,000 people had been registered under the exercise.

“Registration for TPIN continues and people should know that TPIN will be used when accessing vital services going forward,” he said.

“People should come through to ZRA offices and register for a TPIN its mandatory and from 30th June 2019 for someone to apply for power connection with ZESCO they need to have a TPIN without that they cannot have such services,” he explained.

The ZRA Public Relations Manager emphasized that at the moment no one can open a bank account or apply for connectivity at ZESCO without a Tax Payers Identification Number.

The mandatory TPIN registration exercise started in January 2017 and had its deadline of 31 December 2017, extended several times to June 30th 2019.
