New FRCS office to generate $40m annually The new Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) Nausori branch which was officially opened today will generate $40 million annually from tax payers living in the Rewa, Tailevu and Naitasiri provinces.

While opening the office, Fiji Revenue and Customs Service Chief Executive Vishvanath Das said they will serve more than 150,000 taxpayers in the three provinces.

“This office represents an investment by Government through the Fiji Revenue & Customs Service and reiterates our Governments commitment to taking its services to our people.”

“There are 5,386 businesses, 574 companies and 3,336 importers in these three provinces and the taxes and customs duty generated amounts to $40 million dollars annually”.

“Partnership is one of our key strategic Focus areas outlined in our 3-year Strategic plan and we anticipate that the opening of our Nausori office will also enable us to work more closely with you all to ensure we all can grow our Fijian Economy.

Mr. Das emphasized that taxes contribute to the education of all Fijians, ensure a healthy nation, connect communities through roads, airports and bridges and ensure the delivery of public services.

“It is for this reason that we are concerned about the rate of tax evasion which is emerging throughout Fiji”.

“We at Revenue & Customs are strengthening our compliance regime to enable us to catch tax evaders and we will be keeping a special eye on companies that fail to pass on duty or VAT reductions,” he further stressed.

Commissioner Central Mr. Setareki Tale who was also present at the opening ceremony, commended the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service for bringing its services to Nausori.

“The people of Tailevu, Naitasiri and Rewa will no longer have to fork out extra money to travel to Suva to seek FRCS services any more. Neither they will have to sleep over at their relatives place to seek services. These are some of the challenges which people from these provinces faced before.”

“I know these are all part of the government initiatives to decentralize the services to ensure that the people who are unable to access these types of services, have it at their doorstep, without incurring any expenses”, the Commissioner Central said.

Members of the public can lodge their tax returns, register their business, pay their taxes, obtain a Joint card, lodge their tax clearance application and get free advice of tax and customs matters from the Nausori Office.

The Nausori branch is Fiji Revenue and Customs Service’s 11th office in the country.
