BROADER REQUIREMENTS FOR LABELLING UNRELIABLE PAYERS

The GFD’s criteria for referring to a VAT payer as an “unreliable payer” have been expanded. Now taxpayers which state false or incomplete information on their VAT registration can be labelled as unreliable. In deciding whether or not to label a party as unreliable, the tax authority must review all objective circumstances which led to the payer’s failure to provide correct information. Therefore, this should not have an adverse impact on taxpayers which merely make unintentional mistakes. The tax authority should handle such cases differently, such as by sending a notice or by granting a grace period for paying the tax.
