Tax Clearance requirements in Zimbabwe

When you register a new Private Limited Company or Private Business Corporation, you are required to register with the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) within three months of registering your company.

However, there are certain requirements that you would need to provide.

What are the ZIMRA requirements for company registration?

The ZIMRA requirements for company registration are as follows:

  1. Certified copies of the new company.
  2. Certified copies of Director’s identity documents.
  3. Director’s email addresses and phone numbers.
  4. Proof of residence for every director in form of a utility bill (Attach affidavit if the proof of residence is not in director’s name).
  5. Stamped current personal bank statement of one Zimbabwean director.


What do I receive once I register with ZIMRA?

You will first receive a temporary tax clearance also known as a bank advice note. You will use this to open your company’s bank account. Once you open a bank account you will then receive a tax clearance.
