Welcome to the TIMS Support Center

Tax Invoice Monitoring System (TIMS) is a new initiative by the Government of Samoa through the Ministry of Customs and Revenue to increase tax compliance and consequently reduce hidden economy and tax evasion. 

The groups of taxpayers who must have Electronic Fiscal Device (EFD) installed on its premises to record every sale are announced and the installation will be carried out in five phases.

TIMS will enhance domestic revenue collections by creating equal level playing field among all taxpayers and provide insight for both taxpayers and the members of the public (customers) with simple mechanism designed to enable verification of each transaction providing assurance that the right amount of tax is reported to the Ministry in real or near-real time.
