Tax compliance is critical to public service delivery. Tax revenue is the most reliable sources of revenue in financing government business. This narrative has been amplified with the tough time brought about by the COVID -19 pandemic. Over the COVID -19 period, most governments have faced the reality that tax revenue plays a major role in financing development. This reality has pushed many governments towards putting in place enhanced measures to ensure and promote tax compliance.
The business environment rapidly changes with corresponding changes in tax policies. For taxpayers, the various measures that have been put in place and increased vigilance from the revenue authorities have heightened the need for tax compliance to fuel business continuity. This has pushed many organizations to establish tax functions as one of the core functions since tax non-compliance has proofed a costly affair for many companies. Among the challenges associated with non-compliance includes unending tax disputes which have led to liquidation, unnecessary agency notices, huge tax demands and limited access to business opportunities especially where a tax compliance certificate is needed to close a business opportunity.
This seminar is geared towards highlighting key tax developments that have been put in place to promote tax compliance while taking into consideration the tax developments in the international space and the corresponding emerging issues on taxation. Specifically, the seminar will cover the following areas of tax as relates to tax compliance as well issues that are considered emerging in tax practice:
