Proposed increase in VAT

Proposed increase in VAT

πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬Increase in VAT will not happen tomorrow. If at all. There is a process. In the meantime, let’s take time to examine VAT rates around the world, especially in countries similar to ours.

It should not be a matter of β€œI don’t want to any increased Value added tax.’’ I don’t want any either. However, we need to discuss the pros and cons and what is ultimately best for our country at this time.
