AN additional 36 companies have been identified by the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority to join the Gold Card premium group by the end of the year.

This was revealed by the FRCA chief executive officer Jitoko Tikolevu during the gold card launch at the FRCA complex in Nasese, Suva yesterday.

A total of 35 companies have been rewarded with their Gold Card premium after they met the authority's requirements on compliances in the last three years.

He said word had gone out to companies and individuals on the success of this premium.

"Some big companies are not members as well. Even a taxi driver or an individual can become a member but based on their compliance in the last three years."

He said gold card holders would initially become a member for three years.

"Within those three years we will continue to monitor their performance in terms of paying on time and paying the right amount."

He added that these two were very important to determine a compliance level of a particular taxpayer.
