Cyprus: New Tax Administration Portal
On 16 March 2023, the electronic system that was used by the tax authorities (TAXISnet) was partially abolished (only for VAT purposes).
TAXISnet was replaced with a new electronic system called Tax For All (TFA).
This system became operational on 27 March 2023.
The new system, TFA, is the unified tax management system of the tax authorities. The new system aims to bring all of the existing systems of the tax authorities under the same umbrella.
The rollout of TFA will take place in three stages.
For now, TFA will only be used for VAT and the EU VAT Information Exchange System (VIES).
From 27 March 2023, TFA is now used for the below:
- Sending and receiving messages from and to the tax authorities;
- The submission of VAT declarations;
- The submissions of VIES;
- Making payments;
- The submission of a detailed statement of data for the Special VAT Status for farmers;
- The viewing and printing of statements of tax accounts, declarations, payments, and tax refund requests; and
- Issuing certificates
For now, individuals and legal entities who only submit declarations in relation to income tax, emergency defence levy, and the general healthcare system, will continue to submit their declarations through the Taxisnet system.
The tax authorities are aiming for all TFA to be used for all taxes, not just VAT and VIES, by the end of 2024.
The tax authorities have extended the date of submission for regular VAT returns as follows to the below dates in order to facilitate the transition from TAXISnet to TFA:
|Tax period||Original filing deadline date||New filing deadline date|
|01/12/2022 – 28/02/2023||10 April 2023||26 April 2023|
|01/01/2023 – 31/03/2023||10 May 2023||26 May 2023|
