ZIMRA has denied allegations that it misplaced tax records dating back six years

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) has denied losing tax documents stretching back six years. ZIMRA said in a statement obtained by Pindula News that it has not encountered any system breakdowns or server hacking.

According to the authority, the request for information from customers is to update taxpayer records owing to changes in contact information, physical or email addresses, public officials, tax accountants, or missing information.

ZIMRA said it is migrating client data onto its new Tax and Revenue Management System (TaRMS) to enhance efficiency and simplify business processes through automation. The authority is urging all taxpayers to update their master data information to ensure effective communication. The TaRMS system will streamline the tax collection process, and ZIMRA believes it will be more efficient and effective in managing taxpayer information. The authority said it remains committed to providing excellent service to taxpayers and maintaining integrity in tax administration. We present the statement below:

In response to the article “ZIMRA Loses Tax Records Dating Back To 6 Years Ago” published by the NewsHub on June 20, 2023, and republished by Pindula, it is important to note that ZIMRA has not experienced a system crash or hacking of any of its servers.

The request for information from clients is for the purposes of updating taxpayer records since clients sometimes change physical addresses, email addresses, public officers, contact details, tax accountants as well as where there is missing information.
