GCT Returns for May due Friday June 29


Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding business persons that GCT Returns for the month of May are due on Friday June 29, 2018. This is in keeping with the requirement for registered GCT taxpayers to make their monthly GCT Returns and payments on the last working day of the month, after the end of the taxable period.


Taxpayers are therefore reminded that GCT Returns filed and paid after the last working day of the month, will be considered late and the necessary penalties and interest charges applied.


Additionally, all business persons registered to collect GCT are reminded that they are now required to file GCT returns online via Tax Administration Jamaica’s online portal at  This means that GCT Returns for all categories of business persons MUST be filed using TAJ’s online facility, as these Returns will not be accepted at Tax Offices.


Since the implementation of mandatory online filing, for Small and Micro business persons in April this year, approximately 100% of this category of taxpayer are is now registered and filing via the online facility, this is a direct result of the taxpayer support and sensitization campaign conducted by the tax authority. However, business persons have the option of making their GCT payments anywhere, whether via the online facility or at a tax office.


For further information persons may call the Tax Administration Customer Care Centre at 1-888-Tax-Help (1-888-829-4357) or visit the website
