Speaking during a cocktail party to officially unveil the partnership in Lusaka last night, Zamtel Chief Executive Officer Sydney Mupeta said the partnership will significantly boost tax compliance levels among marketeers and small-scale traders.
Mr. Mupeta said Zamtel will build a data Centre to enable ZANAMACA manage and secure member information for efficient implementation of the agreement.
And ZANAMACA President Mupila Kameya said over six million of its members countrywide are expected to benefit from the partnership.
On 15th June 2018, Government through the Ministry of Finance issued a Statutory Instrument which forms a legal obligation to collect base tax in the informal sector.
ZRA consequently appointed ZANAMACA as a sole agent to collect base tax throughout the country.
