We therefore welcome you to visit our advisory centres on Mahe, Praslin and La Digue where our dedicated members of staff will keep you informed about your compliance obligations, from the day you want to set up a business to the day you are in full operation.

What are the services offered at the advisory centre at Oceangate House?
The advisory centre which is located at Ocean Gate House, Room 2, Ground Floor became operational in January 2010 and offers a wide range of services. These include enquiries, registration, payments, and endorsement of Bills of entry.

Enquiries: If you are in need of any information, advice or clarification in relation to any tax or customs-related issues, the SRC officers at the advisory centre can help you. You can do so by visiting the centre, by phoning the officers on the telephone numbers given below or by e-mailing them. There are also officers from the Seychelles Pension Fund who are present at the centre to give advice on any Seychelles Pension Fund issue.

Registration: All new businesses, whether it is a requirement to have a business license or not, must register with SRC for tax purposes. These include small businesses that fall under the Small Enterprise Promotion Agency (Senpa). Registration must be done within 14 days after the business becomes operational and this is done at the advisory centre. Upon registering, the staff there will issue you with your Tax Identification Number (TIN) to be used in all your dealings with SRC. Furthermore, businesses can register for free at the advisory centre to get access to the e-service facility. This facility which is accessible through the government e-service gateway allows organisations to submit their payrolls electronically every month.

These include payments of Income and Non-Monetary Benefits Tax, Goods and Services Tax (GST), Excise Tax, Pay As You Go (PAYG), Business Tax, as well as Seychelles Pension Fund payments.
