By Maimuna Sey-Jawo The deputy commissioner general and the Head of Domestic tax at the Gambia Revenue Authorit, Essa Jallow, has disclosed that by the end of November 2018, the total revenue mobilized by GRA stands at D8.4 billion surpassing the annual target by 4% or D349.6 million dalasis. He added that compared to the same period last year, revenue has grown by 15 % or 1.1 billion dalasis. The GRA deputy CG revealed this over the weekend, during the GRA 2018 annual staff award and recognition held at QCity in Brusubi. According to Jallow, with such performance, GRA is not only awarding and recognizing exceptional performance of staff but celebrating their collective resolve to give Government the fiscal space needed to implement the National Development Plan (2018-2021). Jallow went on to commend GRA for a resounding success in 2018 in revenue collection. Thus, he enjoined staff to be part of the overall strategy to meet government’s revenue expectations “as we have always done by leveraging on the ongoing tax reforms to improve tax compliance and facilitation of international trade.”]]>
