…ZRA has since warned that there will be no access to public services without TPINs

THE Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) says the extension of the Tax Payers Identification Number (TPIN) is to allow everyone to get registered and ensure tax-compliance.

Speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday, ZRA communications manager Topsy Sikalinda said the deadline had been extended up to June 30, for more people to register.

Mr Sikalinda however, noted that the extension only applied to the banking sector while other sectors such as the Road Safety and Transport Agency (RATSA) and ZESCO would still be accessed by  those without TPINs

Mr Sikalinda said that the TPIN registration process had been simplified and could be carried out by anyone online.

He said the process had also been decentralized to all banks across Zambia.

“Anyone is now able to register at their local banks in a short period of time as the commercial banks have been given the mandate to register TPIN”, he explained.

Mr. Sikalinda has since appealed to members of the public to take advantage of the extension and ensure they complied with the law.

He said that the process is on-going for those below the required 18 years of age.
