FISCALISATION
What is Fiscalisation?

Fiscalisation refers to configuring of fiscal devices to enable them to record sales and send them real time to ZIMRA servers. Information is stored on a fiscal memory at the time of sale for use by ZIMRA in Value Added Tax administration.

Who should fiscalise?

All Value Added Tax (VAT) registered operators (with sales turnover of 1 million ZWD) in categories ‘A’, ‘B’ C` and ‘D’ are eligible for Fiscalisation as outlined in SI 104 of 2010 as read with SI 148 of 2016 and SI 153 of 2016.



What are fiscal devices?

These are electronic devices which contain a “fiscal memory”. A “fiscal memory” is a special read only memory which is permanently built into a fiscalised device to store sales information at the time of the sale.

There are three broad categories of the prescribed fiscalised devices and these are;

Fiscalised electronic registers, also referred to as electronic tax registers (ETRs);
Fiscalised printers; and
Electronic signature devices (ESDs)
How do I know the type of device I am required to use?

VAT registered operators are required, for the purposes of recording their business transactions, to use:

A fiscalised electronic register; or
A non-fiscalised electronic register together with a fiscal memory device.
All other operators who are required to use such devices but who are not retail operators are required to use:

An electronic signature device; or
A fiscalised electronic register; or
A non-fiscalised electronic register together with a fiscal memory device.
Is there any assistance ZIMRA is giving in acquiring the devices?

Incentives which are granted to facilitate the Fiscalisation Programme are as follows:

Registered operators can claim 50% of the cost of acquisition of the fiscal electronic registers as Input Tax on their VAT 7 Return.
Rebate of duty is granted to Approved Suppliers on the importation of fiscal devices and fiscal memory devices.
No VAT is payable on the importation of fiscal devices by approved suppliers.
The local supply of fiscal devices and fiscal memory devices is VAT zero-rated.


Training on use of fiscal devices

The approved suppliers will assist you in identifying appropriate devices, install the devices as well as provide training on usage. Taxpayers are urged to configure their devices within 7 days of acquiring them.

Consignment based conformity assessment (CBCA) requirements

In terms of Statutory Instrument 124 of 2020, any goods that are listed in the first schedule to the SI and that arrive in Zimbabwe without a certificate of conformity shall be liable to a compulsory destination assessment process prior to final customs clearance.

Destination assessment means conformity assessment that is done within Zimbabwe at the port of entry or at any other premises in Zimbabwe permissible by the minister. Where a destination assessment is to be made, the importer of the goods is liable to pay inspection fees and a penalty of 15% of the CIF Value of the consignment. The penalty is payable to treasury.

Where goods are to be subjected to a destination assessment, the importer of the goods shall at his cost move the goods to a bonded warehouse or any other suitable location to allow their assessment. Sampling, transportation, testing fees, expenses relating to storage, demurrage, unloading, handling of goods or any other costs are borne by the importer.

Assessment agents may after consultation with relevant authorities, destroy those goods, which are condemned after a destination assessment. Any costs of destruction of substandard goods shall be borne by the importer. A non-conformity report shall be issued to the importer or exporter of the goods at the conclusion of the assessment and where the goods are substandard. Condemned goods shall be exported back to their country of origin or destroyed at the cost of the importer by the relevant authorities. Exemptions from the CBCA Programme United Nations Organisations and Diplomatic Missions are exempt from the CBCA Programme.

Disposal of goods in a State Warehouse

Goods which are kept in a State Warehouse are ultimately disposed of if they are not collected by the owners within the statutory time frames.

How long are goods kept in a State Warehouse?
Goods which are under a Receipt for Items Held (RIH) are kept for a maximum period of two months (60 Days). Goods which are under Notice of Seizure are kept for a maximum period of three months (90 days). Perishable and inflammable goods are disposed of within the shortest possible time from the date and time of seizure/detention.

How are the goods disposed?
Detained goods are disposed through the following methods:
a) Destruction for prohibited and expired goods.
b) Appropriated to the State.
c) Offhand sale for perishable, dangerous or inflammable goods.
d) Rummage/Auction sales.

Who can participate in offhand and Rummage/Auction sales?
Any person including the owner of the goods can participate in these sales. Customs officials and their close family members however are prohibited from participating in these sales.

Are licences and permits a requirement when buying from an Offhand and Rummage sale?
If goods are controlled in terms of section 48 of the Customs and Excise Act (Chapter 23:02) the necessary permits and licences must be obtained if such goods are being disposed through rummage and offhand sale.

Can one get a refund if detained goods are disposed through rummage and offhand sale?
In terms of Section 39 (6) of the Customs and Excise Act (Chapter 23:02) if detained goods are sold, the Commissioner shall apply the proceeds to the payment of –
(a) the duty due and any expenses incurred in connection with the sale;
(b) any carriage charges due to any carrier;
(c) any warehouse rent, storage charges, including storage charges due to any carrier, and
porterage charges in that order and shall pay the balance, if any, to the owner of the goods. If the goods cannot be sold for a sum sufficient to pay the duty, rent and charges as aforesaid, they may, by direction of the Commissioner, be destroyed or appropriated to the State without compensation. Compensation of any excess realized from sale of goods does not relate to goods that have been forfeited to the State.
