The presentation of the dematerialized tax stamp (TFD) took place on Monday 14 February 2022 at the Chamber of Commerce of the Ocean City, in the presence of Pierre-Edwige Celine Nguimbi Monguia, Director of Land Taxation and State Property Registration and Head of project, and Jean François Oboa, Divisional Director of Taxation.
It is within the framework of the improvement and securing of revenues throughout the stamp management chain that the Minister of Finance, Budget and Public Portfolio decided to equip the General Directorate of Taxation and State Property with a payment monitoring tool, under the coordination of the Coordination Committee of the Information System Reform.
Presented and commented by Frantz Sentiment Onkilekemi, IT Project Manager (CPI) at the Ministry of Finance, Budget and Public Portfolio, “the DFA, which replaced the physical stamp, came into force on Tuesday 15 February 2022. This machine is a digital fingerprint combining several security features, including the QR-code, which ensures the uniqueness of each stamp. This helps to combat fraud. The advantages of the stamping machine are speed, tracking and control of revenue”. He presented the CS-200 stamping machine through a video projector, explaining that “the dematerialised fiscal stamp will allow the automatic execution of tasks related to the payment of stamps (detailed amount of stamps sold during the day, the month and even the year). This is thanks to the digital fingerprint, which includes several security features, notably the QR code, which ensures the uniqueness of each stamp. This contributes to the fight against fraud. The advantages of the stamping machine are speed, tracking and control of revenue”. After the CPI's presentation, participants at the meeting raised the problem of recurrent power cuts, which could prevent the machines from working, and the problem of the broken-down generator. Solutions will be found to these difficulties, the organisers suggested.
Training of user-agents
From Monday 14 to Friday 18 February 2022, about twenty executives and agents evolving in the offices of the registration of State Property and stamps (EDT) of Pointe-Noire, followed a first level training, before handling the stamping machines. This training is part of the finalisation of the implementation of the DFA. The EDT sites of Centre, Loandjili, Tié-Tié, and Mpaka received machines that the agents put into operation. The head of the project, Pierre-Edwige Celine Nguimbi Monguia, accompanied by CPI, Frantz Sentiment Onkilekemi, visited the sites receiving the machines.
It should be noted that the DFA was launched on 29 January by the Minister Delegate for the Budget, Ludovic Ngatsé, and will be implemented on 5 February 2021 in 5 selected sites in Brazzaville (Brazzaville-Centre, Bacongo, Poto-Poto, Ouenzé and Talangaï)
