Compliance still a serious challenge in the use of Electronic Fiscal Devices for Revenue Enhancements

Lusaka, 9th July 2021: Revenue shortfalls are common for many Governments across the world. Zambia has in the recent years continued to run on deficit financing which has resulted in the accumulation of public debt. These shortfalls in revenues to meet government’s expenditure needs are caused by many factors such as low tax base that may result from the inability of an economy to generate adequate revenues from its own activities.

Evading taxes however, is a practice that is wide spread even among small businesses in the country.
