ZRA Educates Samfya SMEs on Tax Payments

The Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) is sensitizing small medium enterprises (SMEs) on the importance of obtaining the Tax Payer Identification Number (TPIN).

ZRA officer Kennedy Njobvu has said the authority is sensitizing the public on how to pay taxes and returns through their mobile phones.

He said people were travelling to Mansa from Samfya just to go and file in their returns.

Njobvu explained that starting today, people in Samfya would be using their mobile phones on any network provider and Tenga, a new application from Atlas Mara Bank, to file in their returns.

He was speaking during a sensitization meeting at Kamanda Bus Station in Samfya district in Luapula Province.

Njobvu said ZRA would continue advancing methods that would help to ease the way of doing business and further increase tax-payer agreement.

He said the meeting was a platform that promotes interface networking, “which is good for both the organization and the public”.

Njobvu has since called on the people of Samfya to actively participate in tax programmes in order to know operations of the ZRA.

And Samfya residents have welcomed the introduction of a mobile phone solution to pay taxes, saying it is a good opportunity them in rural areas to file their returns and it will reduce the cost of travelling to Mansa.
