Angola: Sanctions for irregular taxpayers

The Angolan Tax Administration now has the right to publish a list of irregular taxpayers on a quarterly basis, in accordance with an Executive Decree which has been published in the official gazette dated the 1st of March and which came into force on the same date.

Taxpayers with an irregular situation will be prevented from carrying out operations such as the importing and exporting of goods, payments abroad for capital transactions, current invisible transactions and freight operations, obtaining or renewing work visas for expatriates, until providing proof that they have regularized their tax situation.

To that effect the list shall be distributed to the Central Bank of Angola and to the Ministry of Interior, so that the commercial banks and the consular representations and the immigration services can access the relevant information prior to performing certain tasks.
