Customs Stakeholders Satisfaction Survey
During the recent 2021 Income Tax filing season, the MRA invited its Customs Stakeholders to submit electronically their feedback on the quality of services provided by MRA Customs through a Customs Stakeholders Satisfaction Survey. Prior to 2021, the MRA had carried out such a dedidated Customs survey in 2013 through a face to face interaction with these stakeholders.
The table below compares the results of the 2013 and 2021 Customs Stakeholders Satisfaction Surveys (CSSS).
