The Tax Authority of Mozambique and its South African counterpart have both submitted for legal assessment clauses that will guide a revised mutual double taxation agreement.

The focus on double taxation will avoid the same agent being taxed more than once, and is also intended to reduce the overall tax burden.

According to the Director General of the Customs of Mozambique, Ally Malá, it is in the interest of Mozambique and South Africa to improve the quality of services provided at the borders and avoid tax evasion.

South African counterpart Jed Michaletos said the two countries also agreed that the upgrade of the Ponta do Ouro border post should be finished before December in order to reduce year-end pressure on the Ressano Garcia crossing.

Tomorrow, a joint team composed of members of the Mozambique and South Africa tax authorities will travel to Ponta do Ouro to monitor progress in the refurbishment of the border post.
