THOUGHT OF THE WEEK New VAT rate and municipal rates

Updated: Apr 7

Invoices for municipal services are usually issued after the services have been rendered. Therefore, if invoices for services actually rendered during March 2018 are issued for payment on or after 1 April 2018, VAT will be charged at 14%. VAT on services rendered on or after 1 April, will be levied at 15%.


Charges for property rates will however not be affected as these charges are subject to VAT at the zero rate.
