For individuals, the tax year runs from 1 January to 31 December. The tax rates are progressive, with rates ranging from 0% to 42%. The tax system also includes a Goods and Services Tax (GST), which is set at a rate of 10% and is applicable to most goods and services sold or supplied within PNG.

For corporations, the tax year is the same as the company's financial year. The corporate tax rate is 30%, with a 10% rate for non-resident companies. There are also a number of tax incentives available for certain industries and activities, such as agriculture and tourism.

Taxpayers in PNG are required to file an annual tax return by 30 April of the following year, and pay any tax owed by the same date. Payment of tax can be made either in a single lump sum or through regular instalments throughout the year.

Taxpayers are also required to register with the Internal Revenue Commission (IRC) and obtain a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). The IRC is responsible for administering the tax system in PNG and ensuring compliance with tax laws and regulations.
