Grace period extended

The contribution payment deadline for Employers has been further extended to the end of next month – June 2021.

The Fiji National Provident Fund had initially extended the deadline to 31 May 2021, however, given the continued lockdown, employers have been given another month as grace period.

“The prolonged containment period due to the risk of the coronavirus has definitely impacted a lot of businesses and we have extended the deadline for the payment of monthly contributions as a relief measure for employers,” said acting CEO Viliame Vodonaivalu.

“Contributions for April, May and June will now be due next month on 30 June 2021. Penalties for late contributions are waived so these employers can rest assured that they won’t be charged for the late payment of contributions.”

Employers must upload their contribution schedules for April, May and June by the respective month end, to qualify for the grace period.

Other relief measures for employers that were activated in April last year, will also end on 30 June 2021.
