As of June 1, the Seychelles Revenue Commission had been applying penalties for late submission of business activity statements (BAS).

Through the business activity statements, businesses must report and pay a number of taxes, such as goods and services tax, pay-as-you-go (PAYG) tax installments, PAYG withholding, excise tax for locally manufactured goods, and income and non-monetary benefits tax.

Following the entry into force of Statutory Instrument 1 of 2017, the following penalties apply from June 1:

– SCR500 (USD36) in the case of a small business, plus SCR50 for each week or part of a week that the form is not furnished;
– SCR1,000 for medium businesses, plus SCR100 for each week or part of a week; or
– SCR5,000 in the case of a large business, plus SCR500 for each week or part of a week.
