What is ITF263 tax clearance ?

Tax clearance is the process by which the tax authority (ZIMRA) verifies whether a business entity or individual is in good standing with regards to tax payment. A tax clearance certificate is issued as proof of this good standing.

Benefits of tax clearance?

Tax clearance is usually needed as a requirement for doing business with other companies. There are certain situations in which your business may need tax clearance and some benefits a tax clearance certificate may give your business:

Government tenders

To participate in government tenders (almost all governement tenders require a valid tax clearance as a condition).

Commercial tenders

To participate in public tenders (this is mostly because tax registered companies prefer to do business with other tax registered companies).

Proof that you pay tax

To prove that you are tax compliant (a tax clearance certificate is proof that you are paying taxes or are putting your tax issues in order). This will help you get government tenders and also avoiding penalties or punishments.

Avoiding 10% Withholding

To avoid the 10% withholding fee (tax registered companies are required by law to withhold 10% from any company that does not have a valid tax clearance. This is levied only on order amounts above $1000 during any tax year).
