Corporate Income Tax Filing
An annual corporate income tax return (PND.50) must be filed within 150 days from the last day of the accounting period. An Half year corporate income tax return (PND.51) must be filed within 2 months from the last day of the first 6 months of the accounting period. The half year tax is a prepayment calculated from tax liability on an estimation of its net profit for the year. The prepaid tax is creditable against the full year tax liability.
If the taxpayer fails to file a tax return or late submission, it may result in penalties and surcharges.
