KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Finance (MoF) says it has set up an online system for collecting taxes in a more efficient manner.

Amina Ahmadi, head of Afghanistaninfo-icon Revenue Department, said in an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News his department had set up the online system called E-Filling to facilitate taxpayers.

She said: “Through this application, taxpayers fill out forms (statements) and send it to them. This enables the department to collect taxes on time and in an organised way.”

Ahmadi added: “In the form issued by revenue offices, taxpayers calculate their net profit and pay taxes accordingly.”

The online system helps taxpayers enter their sale figures into the system from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. The system works out tax and fine levels of applicants.

“The online system, activated on July 9, has registered 50 percent of big taxpayers, who sent us their statements only,” she continued.

According to Ahmadi, banks, telecommunication firms, state-owned enterprises, insurance and security companies are among the top taxpayers.

The director said they arranged two training workshops every week to help taxpayers understand the benefits of using the online system.

So far, they had organised 48 workshops and around 1,000 people attended the events, she informed.

The Revenue Department information shows 189 billion afghanis were collected in revenue last year. So far 146 billion afs have been collected this year.
