JTB unit is responsible for the electronic system of taxpayers’ registration, which uniquely identifies all taxpayers and is available nationwide.
This unit seeks to create a harmonized electronic taxpayer identification and registration system which would facilitate the sharing of information among the tax authorities. This would eliminate multiple taxpayer registration, increase tax compliance and create a competitive and conducive environment for investors. It will also widen the tax base through the registration of all eligible taxpayers. This would enhance greater compliance and returns as the available information of each taxpayer would enable proper tracking and more effective collection processes. This would lead to an increase in revenue collection.
