ZRA DEFENDS NEW SALES TAX

GOVERNMENT is not going back to the old Sales Tax, but has created a hybrid of the traditional sales tax and VAT, says Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) Commissioner Domestic Taxes Moses Shuko.


Mr Shuko said the new sales tax was aimed at dealing with the economy, social protection and revenue collection.
In an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka, Mr. Shuko said sales tax was progressive as it will protect both the business community and the interest of Zambians.


And Mr. Shuko has encouraged the business community and Zambians to visit the ZRA website and check on the exemption list on the Goods and Services tax.


He however called on the business community in the country to support the move which will enable government to collect enough resources for better provision of public services.
