Oro Governor, Gary Juffa has commended the Government’s stand to review its tax collecting efforts.
He says line agencies must look at companies that are breaking or evading Papua New Guinea’s taxation laws.
The Government of Papua New Guinea will be going into 2018 with a plan for collecting taxes in areas that have had less enforcement of taxation laws.
Oro Governor, Gary Juffa, says he is starting with businesses in his province according to the laws of line agencies, like the Labour Department, the Internal Revenue Commission and PNG Customs, among others, to review their regulation and compliance systems in managing companies who evade taxes and fees.
The move taken by the Oro Provincial Government is based on the size of the company, the past behaviour of the company and the sector in which the company operates.
