MoF launches online service for large taxpayers

MoF launches online service for large taxpayers

Aug 23, 2017 - 20:04

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Finance (MoF) on Wednesday launched an online tax payment system for big taxpayers to prevent corruption and time waste.

Abdul Habib Zadran, the Revenue Department Director General at MoF, told the online system’s inauguration ceremony here, said that the system’s activation would enable big tax payers to avoid referring to the revenue section.

He said tax payers could now download the Taxpayers Specifications Form from the department’s website and send it back to the ministry online.

“Before taxpayers would write their revenue and expenses on paper that was time consuming practice and prone to corruption. But from now on the procedure of sharing information is going to be electronic and computerized.”

He said a total of 500 large taxpayers were registered with the MoF, but currently only 300 companies were operational who could avail the new system. Zadran promised medium and small taxpayers would also benefit from the system next year.

According to him, companies generating revenue amounting to more than 300 million afghanis on annual basis are listed as large taxpayers.

Khan Jan Al Alokozay, acting director of Afghanistaninfo-icon Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI), welcomed the new system and said it would reduce corruption.

He called the online system a big step towards increasing coordination between the private sector and government departments.
