The Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) has sensitised members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Malawi (ICAM) on the new Agents Management Module introduced in Msonkho Online.
MRA delivered a presentation on the module in Mangochi during ICAM’s 2023 Lakeshore Conference.
In her delivery, MRA’s Manager for Marketing Communications, Wilma Chalulu, said the Agents Management Module has various benefits that include giving a facility to transact on behalf of clients electronically and that taxpayers can manage the roles to be performed by an agent or associate.

“This provides an option for taxpayers’ representatives, return preparers, tax consultants, accountants or tax practitioners to do tax transactions on behalf of one or more taxpayers.
“Let me also inform this gathering that come 1 October 2023, payment of TEVET Levy will be done electronically,” said Chalulu.
Chalulu further said Msonkho Online is being implemented to enhance efficiency and effectiveness in tax compliance and taxpayer service management by improving and automating business processes in MRA.

According to MRA, the system is a web-based integrated tax administration process where Malawian taxpayers can access a range of tax services electronically and the platform is convenient, secure and accessible at all times.
