FRCS Launches New Service on the Taxpayer Online Service (TPOS) Portal

The Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) has launched the online filing of Corporate Income Tax (CIT) for tax years 2015 to 2021 on the Taxpayer Online Service (TPOS). CIT is one of the major tax processes of FRCS, which impacts over 35, 000 taxpayers.
For the 2021/2022 Financial Year, CIT had contributed 13.6% or $229.9 million towards the overall revenue collection of $1.692 billion. CIT is filed by companies, co-operatives, estates, trusts and partnerships.
The launch of the CIT online filing for tax years 2015 to 2021 is a significant milestone for FRCS and a demonstration of our commitment to modernise the tax administration, enhance taxpayer experiences and provide more efficient services to Fijians.
Close to 40 CIT returns were filed successfully on TPOS on the first day of the roll-out.
Our digital service aligns with the Fijian Government’s strategy on digital transformation. TPOS is a self-service platform that has transformed the Fijian tax administration with the aim to achieve voluntary compliance, self-assessment environments as well as enhanced the ease of doing business.
FRCS had planned to launch the Personal Income Tax (PIT) online filing for tax years 2015 to 2021 on TPOS simultaneously with CIT online filing for tax years 2015 to 2021. However, this implementation has been deferred to Tuesday 6th September 2022 due to technical complexities related to the migration of data from FRCS’s legacy system.
It is important that all data is migrated correctly to TPOS to avoid any adverse impact on the taxpayers after PIT online filing for tax years 2015 to 2021 is implemented. To facilitate the roll-out of PIT online filing for tax years 2015 to 2021 from next week Tuesday, there will be a system downtime from close of business Friday 2nd September to Monday 5th September 2022. During this time, TPOS will be unavailable.
TPOS went live in December 2019, enabling taxpayers 24/7 access to the FRCS services. Some of these services include Joint ID Card, statement of accounts, ability to update information and file, amend and object to tax returns. TPOS is one of the largest projects in Fiji and currently has more than 100 different services online.
To date, more than 63,000 taxpayers have signed up for TPOS. We encourage more taxpayers to sign up. To access the TPOS portal, taxpayers need to email us the completed one-time login code form available on https://www.frcs.org.fj/wpcontent/uploads/2019/06/FRCS002_Signup-Authentication-Forms-1.pdf and we will send them the code to sign-up.
