- Interest on late payment: The company may also be required to pay interest on the outstanding tax amount at a rate determined by the tax authority.
- Administrative penalties: If a company fails to fulfill its obligations under tax laws, it may be subject to administrative penalties such as fines, suspension of business operations, or revocation of business license.
- Criminal penalties: In cases of tax fraud or evasion, a company may face criminal penalties, including imprisonment and monetary fines.
