The requirement has been entitled ‘the integrated Tax returns Preparation Software’ (i-TapS). 

The i-Taps should support the numerous improvements in the way in which the GRA now handles tax management, and should be in line with, and provide support to, the current Tax legislation the GRA is mandated to administer.

d. Withholding Tax (WHT)
