Gabon passes draft bill to overhaul tax code

The government of Gabon has adopted a draft bill to rewrite the country’s general tax code, according to an official statement released here Monday September 24th.

The decision follows the reform of Gabon’s tax administration institutions in December 2002 when a General Taxation Division was set up following the merging of the Direct and Indirect tax Division with the General Land and Property Division.

The draft bill takes up and integrates common law prescriptions, recommendations by development partners as well as tax related measures of successive finance bills, the statement said.

It guarantees and reinforces tax payers rights through a strict control of the powers of the administration and procedures in place.
