Greetings from Tanzania Safaris Zanzibar Travel Holidays.
Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) is proposing that 18% Value Added Tax (VAT) applied to all service related to the Tourist industry from the 01st, July 2014.
These services will include Ground Transport, Park entrance Fee, Crater service Fee, Guided Safaris, Flight, and excursions.
The Bill was presented to Parliament on the 12th, of June 2014. The date of implementation has not yet been confirmed but it could be as early as 01st, July 2014.
Any New bookings made after the VAT implementation date will be quoted inclusive of the added Value Added Tax.
We do know that this change will affect and inconvenience our esteemed customers and we ask for your understanding in working together with us through this transition.
You are most welcome!
Best Tours Regards,

Tanzanian Tax Authorities Postpone Proposed VAT Duties of Tanzanian Tourism Sector.
Dear Valued Partner,
In recent days there has been much ambiguity regarding the proposed introduction of Value Added Tax (VAT) for certain Tanzanian tourism products, including park fees, concession fees, transfer charges, game drives and activities.
Tanzania Safaris Zanzibar Travel Holidays.Org is pleased to announce that the proposed VAT implementation has now been postponed by the Tanzanian Government with further consultations now being planned with stakeholders sometime in November.
We will, of course, keep all of our Partners updated as to any and all developments regarding this matter as and when they occur.
We are therefore happy to clarify that there will be no increases to our rates during this current year.
We do hope that this announcement provides both comfort and reassurance to you during what has been a time of uncertainty.
With sincerest thanks,
Tanzania Safaris Zanzibar Travel Holidays.Org
