Department of General Sales Tax/Atlantic Bank Offer New Feature to Improve GST payments

Belize City, May 10, 2007

The Government of Belize Department of General Sales Tax, in collaboration with Atlantic Bank Limited, announce that effective immediately, GST registered businesses will be able to attach their return forms when paying through Atlantic Online. 

Customers are asked to visit http://www.gst.gov.bz/ and download the GST Return Form (GST 200).  When processing payments through Atlantic Online, users will be required to attach the GST Return Forms, which will be forwarded electronically to the Department of General Sales Tax via a secure environment.   Only payments with attached GST Return Forms will be processed on Atlantic Online.

Customers paying over the counter will also be required to submit a physical copy of the Tax Form, which will be subsequently delivered to the GST office.   Payments made over the counter are also immediately received by the Department of General Sales Tax Office.

This new improvement is a step in the continued effort by the Department of General Sales Tax to achieve optimum efficiency in service to the public.  The option of paying GST at Atlantic Bank branches across the country or online at www.atlabank.com has increased payment channels providing added convenience to customers.

Atlantic Bank Limited currently offers a wide range of online services through its website www.atlabank.com, including corporate e-banking, personal internet banking and online bill payments to utilities and other participating businesses.

If you have any questions or need any assistance please call any of the Atlantic Bank branches; we will provide online assistance or visit your office to provide training in making these payments.
