Officers of the Timor-Leste Revenue Service are not authorised to receive payments from taxpayers.

Pay Taxes at a BNU Branch

To pay taxes in Timor-Leste you are required to:

  • complete 3 copies of the relevant monthly taxes form or annual income tax form, and
  • deliver these forms and the amount of tax to be paid to a branch of the Banco Nacional Ultramarino (BNU).

BNU will stamp the forms:

  • one copy will be retained for the Timor-Leste Revenue Service, and
  • the other will be returned to you for your records.

Pay Electronically

Taxes may also be paid electronically using Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).

You may transfer USD to:
