Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA), Liberian Revenue Authority (LRA) have signed a mutual cooperation to enhance assistance and cooperation between their respective customer’s administrations.
The cooperation includes exchange and sharing of advice, information, and experience between the two institutions as well as finding lasting solutions to existing challenges between the two institutions.
The two revenue authorities have agreed to share information about their customer’s laws and procedures that are relevant to ensure proper application of tax laws and mutual cooperation, in the prevention investigation and combating of tax offenses.
RRA Commissioner Richard Tusabe said that the cooperation will assist the two authorities to offer proper services since both authorities are better in some way or the other.
"They are better than us in certain areas, even us we are better in other areas so what we can work together as a way of learning from each other. The cooperation will enhance two authorities in building capacity to sustain the improvements that have been achieved" Tusabe said
LRA Commissioner Stewart Elfrieda also said that the reason cooperating with RRA is that Rwanda is one of the states which is developing in the business sector.
"Rwanda is one of the fasting growing economies on the continent especially in the business sector, so we as LRA decided to cooperate with RRA. We wish to learn a lot from RRA especially when it comes to tax collection in general and how to change the mindset of tax payers"
