KUWAIT CITY, Jan 19: The Ministry of Finance has launched the online system for issuance of tax certificates, reports Al- Seyassah daily. This will allow the concerned individuals and institutions to obtain tax certificates through the website of the ministry where they can check the accuracy of their data in order to prevent rejection, deletion of application or being subjected to legal liability in line with Income Tax Decree number 3/1995 amended as law number 2/2008.
The authorities should consider the e-certificate an official document issued by the ministry in refunding the income tax deposit to companies, institutions and individuals whose contracts with them have ended.
This is part of the ministry’s commitment to improve its services continuously in a bid to better serve the finance and labor sectors, companies and individuals in line with the Cabinet’s resolutions to facilitate procedures for citizens.
