A settlement fee of 10 per cent of the tax would be recovered from those taxpayers who had not submitted the return on time but had deposited the tax on time, he stated. He further said that the traders who had neither submitted the return nor paid the tax on time, a settlement fee of 110 per cent would be recovered from them.
