Every March, June, September and December my company pays 0.3% of Total Turnover to the municipal for City service Levy.And All Companies operating in Tanzania should be doing the same.
Service Levy is one of the sources of Local Government Own Revenues. LGAs tax collections is the responsibility of the councils and is completely separated from the central government.
In District Councils Revenue collection is organised around 3 levels; Council Headquaters, the wards and Village levels.
City Service Levy is imposed to Corporates at a rate 0.3% of turnover payable quaterly.
My Question; Do all Companies operating in Tanzania pay City Service Levy? In Time? I bet most of them do not even know this tax exist.
