Eighty companies were issued gold card certificates by the Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority yesterday.

These companies have had a consistent history of excellent taxation compliance.

Yesterday saw the renewal of Gold Card Membership as well as the inclusion of 17 new members. This takes the membership up to 80 which has doubled since the gold card initiative in 2012.

“The Gold Card Premium Services is to reward deserving FRCA customers or Fijian taxpayers who have been tax compliant in the past few years,” FRCA chief executive Visvanath Das said.

“It is also to visibly recognise that such entities and individuals are passionate and worthy citizens of our beloved country,” he said.

Mr Das added: “FRCA has also partnered with other agencies such as the Immigration Department, Airports Fiji Limited, Biosecurity Authority of Fiji, Land Transport Authority and Fiji Airways to provide premium services to its Gold Card members.”

Some of the benefits of being a Gold Card member include, priority services and personal baggage duty free allowance of about $2000 at international arrivals counters, priority services for passports and permits at the Immigration Department.

Also included are baggage collection and escort services by Airports Fiji Limited and express lane and priority services for all inspection and clearance services at the Biosecurity of Fiji.
