Transitioning From a Manual to an Electronic Taxpayer Registration ProcessJuly 20, 2023
The Internal Revenue Department (“IRD”) has recently made an announcement on a transformational change in the taxpayer registration process. In order to facilitate the taxpayer registration with the IRD efficiently and effectively, the process has been changed from “Manual Submission to the IRD” to “Electronic Registration Management System (“ERMS”)”. The taxpayers can now obtain Taxpayer’s Identification Number (“TIN”) from IRD via ERMS. It is effective from 23 May 2023.
The IRD implemented the ERMS for taxpayers, aiming to make the process easier and faster for all taxpayers including companies, organizations, non-profit organizations and individual taxpayers. By introducing the ERMS, taxpayers can now register and obtain TIN from the IRD’s website https://eregistration.ird.gov.mm/.
The procedures are as follows:
- Step (1) User registration – this is to setup user account with IRD and create new user request registration
- Step (2) Business registration – this is to submit your application form with required documentation
- Step (3) Business certification – under this step (3), taxpayer can issue TIN certificate
- Step (4) Tax processes – once taxpayers have obtained TIN number and its user account, taxpayers can now submit monthly, quarterly and annual tax return via e-filing and other tax processes such as online tax payment, obtaining confirmation of tax payment, etc.
