Issues to Note While Amending the Income Tax Law

With some minor amendments, the Income Tax Law (proclamation no 286/2002) has been operational for the last 14 years, complemented by the proclamation regulating Ethiopia’s Value Added Tax. Both proclamations were the result of measures the government took to expand the tax base and modernise the system. The purpose was to mobilise resources to fund development projects and government expenditures from domestic sources. The results have been noticeable, as the federal tax authority was able to increase tax collection drastically, with the annual amount reaching more than ETB100 billion in the just-ended budget year.
