PRESIDENT John Magufuli yesterday issued a seven-day ultimatum to all ministers to work on critical challenges haunting the business community in the country.
He particularly directed the Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr Philip Mpango and Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) Commissioner General Charles Kichere to meet and deliberate on the best strategy to reduce the burden of backlog taxes to traders. Speaking at the 11th Tanzania National Business Council’s (TNBC) meeting at State House in Dar es Salaam, the business community raised concern over the outstanding debts that were accumulated over many years.
Responding, Dr Magufuli ordered the ministry and TRA to meet with businesspeople and renegotiate on the outstanding amount that can fairly be paid to ease the tax burden that threatens many businesses in the country. “We should have a human face and avoid being too rigid because the government relies on the business community to raise revenue,’’ said the president, arguing that if for instance the businessperson owes TRA money that was accumulated in 10 years, the taxman can forego five years and collect the amount accumulated for five years.
