ZRA raises K2 m from impounded heavy duty vehicles 

By Staff Reporter

The Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has raised K2 million in taxes from owners of 356 heavy duty vehicles out of the 500 impounded for dubiously entering Zambia in June this year.

ZRA Corporate Communications Manager Topsy Sikalinda said owners of the 356 impounded vehicles responded after the authority publicized details.

“We gave the owners a period in which they were supposed to respond. I can confirm that out of the 500, we had about 356 owners who responded. We then calculated the principal amount and so far, we can confirm that we have collected close to K2 million in terms of taxes,” Sikalinda stated.

He stated that ZRA had engaged Zambia Police, Road Transport and Safety Agency and other partners to ensure everyone was compliant.

“Therefore, it is our appeal that if you brought in a vehicle through dubious means, come to ZRA so that you may normalize what is wrong with the vehicle. If you keep on waiting, unfortunately we will come after you and things will not be good for you,” he said.
