Revenue administrations are responsible for administering revenue laws and collecting revenue. They also have to provide advice to Ministries of Finance to help in the analysis of tax policy. To be effective and efficient in managing their performance on influencing compliance, and in meeting their external reporting requirements, revenue administrations need data. They need to base decisions on good information and intelligence, derived from analysis of quality data.

In response to this need, the IMF’s Regional Technical Assistance Center for Southern Africa (AFRITAC South) will jointly host a Seminar on the International Survey on Revenue Administration (ISORA) and Managing Performance in a tax administration with AFRITAC East (AFE) and AFRITAC West 2 (AFW2). The program is sponsored jointly by the regional technical assistance centers (RTAC) and the IMF’s Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD). It is designed for coordinators of the ISORA for Tax administration. The 5-day seminar will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa at the OR Tambo International Airport Intercontinental Hotel, during the week February 26- March 2, 2018.

The purpose of the seminar is to discuss the importance of performance management in enabling tax administrations to be effective and efficient. It will focus on the role of the ISORA in enhancing the effectiveness of performance measurement through providing revenue administration management with relevant information for control and decision making.
