Please be informed of the recently issued Guide by the TRA on “TAXATION FOR NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION IN TANZANIA”.

The Guide provides practical directives on issues relevant for CSOs /NGOs legally registered and operating in the country under different statutes.  

This guide: 
– Explains basic requirements for registering with TRA as a taxpayer;

– Explains the basic legal and practical details of relevant taxes, levies, duties and concessions applicable;

– Highlights common misconceptions by non-profit organisations under the different types of taxes, duties and levies; and

– Contains information on how to become a ‘Charitable Organisation’ and taxation of charitable organisations.

NB: The TRA have stated clearly that; This toolkit is not substitute for the respective Laws. The tax laws shall prevail in case of any inadvertent conflict.

Feel free to reach out for a discussion on the same.
