Tax in Developing Countries: Increasing Resources for Development


The report published by the International Development Committee highlighted the importance of tax collection in developing countries, and recommended that the UK’s aid programme should increase its focus on supporting tax authorities.This is equally valid for all forms of taxation, including VAT, personal income taxation and corporate taxation. It is also essential that taxes are paid on a fair and equal basis by local companies and individuals as well as foreign investors, the International Development Committee recommended that this sort of work should be given higher priority within the UK’s future aid programmes.
