EFD machines to be supplied by government alone

By Emmanuel Onyango

The government has revoked the tender given to agents for the supply of its Electronic Fiscal Devices (EFDs) and instead it will carry out the supply of the machines itself.

The Deputy Minister for Finance and Economic Planning Dr. Ashatu Kijaji said today in parliament that, the government has withdrawn after incurring losses in the supply of the said machines.

Without mentioning the specific losses, the agents caused, the minister noted that, newly registered customers in need of such machines will have them through Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA).

She said all tax payers musty be in possession of these devices so as to keep their up-to-date financial records without manipulation.

The Minister was responding to the question earlier raised by Nsimbo legislator Richard Phillip Mbogo (CCM) who wanted to know the trend of government and the use of the EFD machines which he said do not last longer and lost records an aspect that it is impossible to keep records of tax payers.
