THE Zambia Revenue Authority says that the newly launched newspaper called “The Mast” is an illegal publication that is not registered for tax purposes.

The Zambia Revenue Authority says it is illegal for any company in Zambia to operate without
tax registration.

This comes after a search on the ZRA TaxOnline system revealed that the newly launched newspaper
called The Mast is not registered for taxes.

Without registration for taxes, The Mast Newspaper is an illegal publication.

ZRA will not allow individuals and business to evade tax at liberty because such acts defraud the
national treasury.

The Authority is strongly warning all business entities that are not registered for tax to do so in order to
be on the safe side with the laws of the land that relate to tax.

Businesses operating without tax registration are encouraged to visit any ZRA office across the country
and get guidance on how to get registered.

The Income Tax Act Cap 323 of the Laws of Zambia requires anyone in receipt of an income to register
with the Zambia Revenue Authority.
