MEMBERS of the public do not have to pay a fee for the first issuance of Fiji National Provident Fund/Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority joint card, which contains the tax identification number.
In a statement this week, FRCA CEO Jitoko Tikolevu said the authority did not charge for the issuance of TIN, however, a replacement would cost $10.
He said the only exception was when a person was applying for the re-issuance of the card.
“We charge a fee of $10 for those who are asking for a replacement card either because they have lost or damaged their card.
“FRCA and FNPF had invested significantly in the card, which is why the replacement fee is $10.
“But if you are applying for the card for the first time, it is free.
“There is also no fee for the filling of the FNPF/FRCA joint ID card application form. However, we have also received complaints that some people are doing this (charging fees).”
