How to Pay Taxes

Officers of the Timor-Leste Revenue Service are not authorized to receive payments from taxpayers.

Pay Taxes at a BNU Branch

To pay taxes in Timor-Leste you are required to:

1. Complete 3 copies of the relevant monthly taxes form or annual income tax form, and

2. Deliver these forms and the amount of tax to be paid to a branch of the Banco Nacional Ultramarino (BNU).

BNU will stamp the forms:

1. One copy will be retained for the Timor-Leste Revenue Service, and

2. The other will be returned to you for your records.

Pay Electronically

Taxes may also be paid electronically using Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).
