Suriname hikes import sales tax
- Jan 15, 2021 | Richard Asquith
The South American state of Suriname is to raise import sales tax from 10% to 12%. This is a short-term measure. Most domestically services are still taxed at 8%, except luxuries which are charged at 25%. Domestically supplied goods are subject to 8% sales tax.
The turnover tax is, in principle, due when remuneration is (partially) received. A tax return is filed within 15 days after the end of the specific month.
