The Ministry of Finance invites members of the public to submit proposals for tax and non-tax revenue for the 2014 National Budget and the 2014 to 2016 Medium Term Expenditure Framework [MTEF].
The submissions will be used as references in formulating the 2014 national budget. The proposals should meet the following criteria:
1. Clearly outlined proposed measure, justification and expected impact;
2. All proposals on improvement of tax administration must clearly outline anomalies/challenges in current statutes which are proposed to be corrected and justify expected improved outcomes, especially in revenue collection; and
3. Contact details [Phone, Email, Fax, and Postal Address] of the proposer.
The consultation period ending 31st July, 2013 has been set to ensure that all citizens, including the youth, women groups, the private sector, and all other stakeholders and interest groups participate in the formulation of the 2014 Budget and the 2014 to 2016 MTEF. The Ministry of Finance is therefore, making an earnest appeal to the public to embrace this gesture so that consultations on the 2014 National Budget are broadened in line with the Government’s Policy to streamline taxation and create an enabling environment for employment creation and wealth formation for all.
