The President, however, voiced concern about the current tax system in the country, which he stated was characterised by fragmented administration, complex and often overlapping levies, as he declared open the second National Tax Dialogue Week on Tuesday.

“The tax administrative processes and practises are harmonised inside a single system in the majority of tax-efficient nations. The promotion of tax administration synergy among the various levels of government is a fundamental outcome of this year’s tax discussion.
