Taxation: Togolese Commissioner Adoyi urges African tax administrations to exchange data for better tax collection

Today, no administration can operate alone.” These were words recently spoken by Essowavana Adoyi, Tax commissioner at the Togolese Tax Office (OTR), to emphasize the need for cooperation between African tax authorities.

This was during the third reunion of competent authorities of the African Forum for Tax Administrations (ATAF), in Lomé.

Adoyi explained that tax administrations need to cooperate relating information in order to boost their respective earnings, in a context where States’ spending needs keep rising. Actually, a platform reviewed during the reunion has been put in place by the ATAF for its member-States in this regard.

Concretely, sharing best practices for data exchange aims at not letting any tax imposable go uncollected.

Unless exonerated, no revenue should slip away from the tax office but if tax administrations don’t exchange as much data as possible, they could fail to collect taxes efficiently,” declared the commissioner.
