2 Zanzibar Stamp Duty (Stamp Duty Act N. 6 of 1996) Stamp Duty on trading increased to 3%. This duty applies to traders with turnover below the threshold for VAT registration and those not under Hotel Levy system for all sales exceeding TZS 1,000. Stamp duty rate for trading was previously charged at the rate 1.5%. Port Services Charges and Airport Fees. Ports Service Charges for passengers travelling between Zanzibar and Tanzania Mainland increased from TZS 1,000 to TZS 2,000 per passenger. Airport Fees increased from USD 30 to USD 35 for every passenger travelling outside the United Republic of Tanzania and from TZS 5,000 to TZS 10,000 for passengers travelling within the United Republic of Tanzania. Stamp duty on loans. The Government has proposed to set a cap on Stamp Duty c h a rg e d on loans. Such loans were previously charged at a rate of 1% of the value of the loan. Such stamp duty is considered as an obstacle to growth of financial services sector and on capital investments thus slowing down the growth of the economy and affecting its competitiveness with neighboring countries. Hotel Levy (Hotel Levy Act N. 1 of 1995) Hotel Levy rate increased to 18%. The tax rate has been increased from 15% to 18% and will affect all Hotels, Restaurants and Tour Operations Services not registered under VAT system. Petroleum (Petroleum Levy Act N. 7 of 2001) Increase of Petroleum tax rate by TZS 50 per litre of petrol and diesel fuel only. Page 1

3 Zanzibar Tax Administration (Tax Administration And Procedures Act N. 7 of 2009) Rental/Lease of investment projects(hotels) for operation purposes. The government proposed to amend the above act in order to cub tax evasion. The incidence of any tax liability to fall also on the owner of the hotel project duly registered with ZIPA. This measure aims to ensure proper notification is made to the tax authorities on decision of the owners of the hotel projects to rent/ lease their properties to other companies. VAT (The Value Added Tax Act N. 4 of 1998) Increased Threshold for VAT registration. The government raised the minimum threshold that taxpayers would be obliged to register for VAT from annual turnover of TZS 15 million to TZS 30 million. This measure will help Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to find opportunities to grow before their registration with the VAT System. The increase of the minimum threshold will also increase efficiency in that it will only allow those large businesses with higher turnovers to be registered with VAT system. Skills and Development Levy (The Vocational Training Act N. 8 of 2006) Distribution of revenue from Skills and development levy (SDL). The government will apportion the revenue collected into 60% to higher education and 40% to vocational training. Exempting government from paying SDL. The Government and its institution, receiving subventions from the consolidated fund, will be exempted from paying the SDL. The government will however set aside an amount of money not less than 3% but not exceeding 5% of the total wage bill for the purpose of higher education and vocational training. This measure will counter the double counting of government contribution of SDL. Page 2

4 Zanzibar ZIPA (Zanzibar Investment Promotion and Protection Act N. 11 of 2004) Amendment of grace period on land rent. Approved enterprise may (previously shall ) be exempted from paying land rent during construction period, provided that such exemption shall not exceed six months from the date of the lease Reduction of tax exemption (tax holiday) to the investment projects. The government proposed to remove tax holidays in new investment projects in the Free Economic Processing Zones (EPZ) and Free ports. This will only apply to the new investment projects and does not include those which have previously been classified under t he above. Labour Reschedule of minimum payment of PAYE for foreign experts. The government through ZIPA, Department of Work, Department of Immigration and Tanzania Revenue Authority is expected to review thoroughly the minimum salary levels of foreign experts. This measure aims to avoid tax evasion, ensure that all employed foreigners pay their taxes as per their earnings and maintain the government stance on employment of citizens. Page 3
