The State Tax Inspectorate, known as the VMI (Valstybinė mokesčių inspekcija), oversees this process and expects businesses and residents to adhere to a set of
obligations, including the submission of specific declarations. Four key declarations that businesses in Lithuania are required to submit to the VMI are the Declaration on controlled and controlling persons, the Income Declaration of residents GPM 312, the Income Tax Declaration, and the Advance Income Tax Declaration.
Declaration on Controlled and Controlling Persons:
This declaration is a crucial part of the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing measures in Lithuania. It requires individuals and entities to disclose information about the individuals who control and are being controlled by the reporting entity. Controlled persons are those who hold direct or indirect ownership in a business entity, while controlling persons, are those who exercise direct or indirect control over the operations of a business. This declaration is an essential tool in ensuring transparency and preventing illicit financial activities.
Income Declaration of Residents GPM 312:
The Income Declaration of residents, often referred to as GPM 312, is an annual requirement for Lithuanian tax residents. In this declaration, individuals must provide detailed information about their income, including employment income, rental income, dividends, and other sources. It allows the tax authorities to determine the appropriate rate for taxing this income. The GPM 312 declaration plays a crucial role in assessing an individual’s or family’s overall tax liability.
Income Tax Declaration:
The Income Tax Declaration in Lithuania is a comprehensive financial report submitted by businesses and self-employed individuals. It includes a detailed breakdown of the company’s income, expenses, and other financial data. This declaration is a key element in calculating the income tax liability for corporations and self-employed individuals. Proper documentation and accurate reporting are essential to ensure compliance with Lithuanian tax laws.
Advance Income Tax Declaration:
Businesses operating in Lithuania are required to submit an Advance Income Tax Declaration, often on a monthly basis, to prepay their income tax obligations. This declaration ensures that businesses make regular tax payments throughout the year, helping to manage their tax liabilities and avoid any significant financial burdens at the end of the fiscal year. It is crucial for businesses to accurately project their expected income to avoid under or overpayment of taxes. In summary, submitting financial reports and declarations to the VMI is not only a legal obligation but also a vital step in ensuring transparency and compliance with Lithuania’s tax regulations.
