TAC102 – Complying with your Tax Obligations

About this Course

 

In the first course of our Taxation Series (TAC101: Fundamentals of the Sierra Leone Tax System), we explored the core principles that underpin the tax system in Sierra Leone. From the importance of rules and regulations to specific tax computations, TAC101 created a platform for practicing accountants, lawyers, tax advisors and other participants to grasp technical and practical aspects of all taxes generally applicable in Sierra Leone.

 

Tax compliance is key for any business to ensure they avoid penalties and other sanctions levied by the tax administration. To further assist businesses, practicing accountants, lawyers and other participants in meeting their tax obligations, TAC102 will build on the foundations of TAC101 by delving deeper into tax calculations and introducing compliance aspects of taxation, with particular emphasis on ensuring accurate and timely reporting to avoid tax penalties and interest.
