Where the registration threshold is met, there is need to:

  • Complete the REV 1 Form and submit to the nearest Zimra Office,
  • Attach Sales schedule from the time of commencement of trade to date; or
  • Provide Sales projections schedule for the next 12 months; or

Operators who qualify for registration but have not yet done so are encouraged to take advantage of the Voluntary Disclosure Program that ZIMRA is running with which is ending on 31 December 2018. To benefit from the Voluntary Disclosure Program an application form should be completed and submitted at the nearest ZIMRA Offices. Penalties are waived for voluntary disclosure once the application is approved.
