8 Sep 2017

The government of South Sudan has approved the 2017/2018 budget which will see taxes increased for the country’s telecoms operators. The East African quotes Finance Minister Stephen Dhau as saying that under the USD300 million budget, the government plans to raise sales tax from 15% to 20% and proposes to increase excise on telecoms services from 10% to 30%. He added that the move will ‘bring the total tax burden on telecommunication services in line with other countries in the region’.
