From Monday 15 to Friday 19 June 2020, in the premises of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 45 tax managers and cashiers from the Large Enterprises Unit (UGE) and the Medium Enterprises Unit (UME) will be trained in the use of the E-TAX project (new Online Payment System for Duties, Taxes and Fees) which will soon replace the old SYSTAF system.
This 5-day training course, supervised by Lambert Ifoko, Director of Taxation of Large Enterprises at the Directorate General of Taxation and State Property (DGID) and E-TAX User-Project Manager, comes after the presentation of the full-scale test phase of the said project to selected large corporate taxpayers, which took place on 27 May 2020 in Brazzaville. "These taxpayers had made comments which were taken into account. Today, thanks to this training of all the agents working at the level of the Tax Divisions, we can move on to the production phase of the E-TAX Project," said Lambert Ifoko; addind that "during this training, the first E-TAX module will be launched, which will allow to pay VAT (Value Added Tax) and additional cents online".
This training of 45 managers and cashiers of the UGE and UME-Brazzaville, who are adding to the first 20 previously trained, was marked, on the first day, by the notions on the"Existing Tax Return" and the "Tax Entity Opening Declaration".
It should be noted that a similar training workshop will be organized for their colleagues in Pointe-Noire, starting next Monday, June 22nd.
