Update: 2:34PM THE Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority (FRCA) is concerned that some taxpayers and importers are forging tax documents issued by FRCA for personal benefits.

"Forging documents for personal gain is a serious crime under the Crimes Decree and anyone found doing so will have to face the consequences. At the moment we are investigating all complaints received," Chief Executive Jitoko Tikolevu said in a statement released today.

"We also had some cases where some taxpayers allegedly tried to bribe our officers. We wish to reiterate that FRCA has no gift policy."
