REVENUE PERFORMANCE REPORT FOR THE FIRST HALF ENDED 30 JUNE 2023

The operating environment was depressed for the greater part of the first half of the year, characterized by high inflation and a depreciating local currency. The Zimbabwean dollar continued to weaken against the USD with the exchange rate opening the year at US$1: ZWL$684.33 and closing at US$1: ZW$5,739.80. On the other hand, year-on year inflation worsened by 74.24 percentage points from 101.51% in January 2023 to 175.75% at the close of June 2023. This prompted the Government to introduce some monetary and fiscal measures to stabilize the economy, with a cocktail of measures implemented in May and June 2023. The interventions brought some stability towards the end of the period under review.
Power supply improved during the first half of the year, impacting positively on production. The to***co selling season which opened in March 2023 contributed to foreign currency supply in the economy and resulted in less pressure on the local currency. Furthermore, the reduction in interest rates from 200% to 140% is expected to spur production and economic growth.

General Registration Certificate Form: Personal Effects and Goods for Repair and Return

Certain goods can be temporarily exported and not pay duty on their return due to their nature and purpose of export. These are personal items that are carried on a travellers person that qualify for such a reprieve in Customs that are for personal consumption. There are many cases where travellers indicate that they had temporarily exported their valuable personal effects but do not have proof that they did so. In this instance, they would not be carrying any documents to support their plea. This has resulted in many disputes among travellers and officers.

Let us explore a summary of instances and goods that can be temporarily exported and not pay duty on their return.

Personal effects
Used clothing and toilet requisites should be in such quantities and of such values as the Commissioner may consider being reasonable. Articles like radios, binoculars, laptops and cameras should be registered at a Customs House or Port of exit before exportation. The said articles shall be brought before the officer registering them, for inspection. The articles shall only be registered if they can be accurately described and are capable of being identified (have serial numbers) on their return. If the articles meet the above conditions, the officer will issue traveller with a General Registration Certificate with the full details of the article including serial numbers and his/her personal details. This certificate should then be produced on return as proof of temporary export so that no duty will be charged on that article.

Goods for Repair and Return
When goods are exported for repair and return, only the cost of repairs will be subject to duty. The tariff heading to be applied is that under which the repaired article, as re-imported would be classified. For instance, duty rates levied on the cost of repairing a television set are those applicable on an imported television set.
Where the repair was done in terms of a valid guarantee and no charge is raised for the repair, no duty will be levied on re-importation of such an article,

General Registration Certificate and Declaration Form
It is very important to declare your personal effects which you are temporarily exporting so as to avoid inconveniences on re-entry or challenges with officers at the port of exit. A General Registration Certificate is used for this purposes and in cases where such forms are scarce, a Declaration Form 47 processed by the officer at a Customs House or port of exit can also serve the same purpose. The form should clearly indicate goods temporarily exported and/or for re-importation.

ZIMRA Takes Customer Service to the Next Level with New Contact Centre

One of the key strategic projects that the Authority was running in 2022 was the Contact Centre Project which culminated in the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) introducing a contact centre as part of its operations. This new initiative is expected to have a significant impact on businesses and individuals who interact with ZIMRA on a regular basis.
The facility comes with a toll-free short code, 585, that is accessible across all networks with TelOne subscribers further having the convenience of another line to use, 08688007614. The toll-free line is accessible from anywhere in the country, eliminating the need for face-to-face interactions thereby reducing the time and cost associated with physical visits to ZIMRA offices. Furthermore, taxpayers can use WhatsApp, Email, Facebook and Twitter to access the contact centre.

The introduction of the contact centre is a welcome development for businesses and traders in Zimbabwe as it offers a more convenient and efficient way of accessing information and services thereby improving trade facilitation in Zimbabwe. With a dedicated team of customer service representatives available to provide guidance and support, businesses and traders can navigate the complex regulatory environment with greater ease and confidence. This is particularly important for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who may not have the resources or expertise to deal with complex taxation and customs issues on their own. The customer service representatives are trained to handle queries and provide assistance on a wide range of issues related to taxation, customs, and other tax-related matters.

In addition to improving trade facilitation, the Contact Centre is also expected to enhance customer experience by providing a more convenient and accessible way of getting information and services. ZIMRA is demonstrating its commitment to customer service by providing a platform through which taxpayers can interact and get timeous feedback. This should go a long way in contributing to a more positive business environment in Zimbabwe.

As ZIMRA continues to invest in modernizing its operations and improving service delivery, businesses and traders can look forward to a more streamlined and responsive revenue authority in the future. The expectation is to take service and customer experience to another level through this channel.

Streamlining Trade in Zimbabwe: Introducing the Zimbabwe Electronic Single Window System

The Zimbabwe Electronic Single Window (ZESW) concept was introduced in 2022 as part of measures to enhance efficient clearance of legitimate traffic and trade facilitation at the country’s ports of entry.

The objective of the ZESW is to improve trade facilitation and to achieve efficiency and effectiveness in pursuing the goals of revenue collection, enforcement of trade laws, social protection, and providing business intelligence to the government.

Zimbabwe provides the gateway to Africa through the north and south corridor, hence efficient trade facilitation at the country’s ports of entry is key for the region’s rapid economic growth.

The ZESW initiative is also in sync with global trends on customs reforms and best practices, as well as a National Development Strategy 1 priority on trade facilitation.

Currently, the country’s ports of entry are manned by various government departments and agencies that have a critical legislative role in the trade facilitation matrix.

Under the Single Window initiative, ZIMRA as the lead agency has the role to ensure the coordination and harmonization of clearance processes at the country's ports of entry.

The project is in its second year and its first stage of implementation is set to be launched by the end of September 2023. The first phase saw an intensive mapping exercise and integration of all key processes on the Single Window platform.

The major beneficiaries of the single window initiative will be importers and exporters, shipping and freight forwarders, the transport sector, customs administration as well as government departments and agencies, whose mandate includes the movement of food, drugs, health, agricultural-related products, and environment.

Once the initiative is commissioned, clients and stakeholders will not be moving from one agency to another as all the regulatory and transitory services, processes and payments will be done online through a single platform, thus faster, better, and transparent.

The major benefits of the Single Window will be compliance among agencies, more efficient and productive use of resources, enhanced collection of fees, duties, and penalties; streamlined and automated compliance to transitory, legislative, and regulatory requirements, and most importantly predictability, convenience, and efficiency to all actors in cross border trade.

Other benefits include enhanced risk analysis, improved security, reductions in corruption and illegal trade activities, enhanced transparency, ease of access to trade statistics, and accountability.
The ZeSW rides on a robust digital platform and ZIMRA is already activating its system in readiness for the integration and data processing from other agencies.

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development is supporting the ZeSW project as part of the harmonization of the customs service delivery initiative.
Other countries that have successfully implemented the single window concept include Jamaica, Rwanda, Uganda, and Kenya.

TaRMS Project gains momentum
The Tax and Revenue Management System (TaRMS) is set to revolutionalise the tax administration terrain in the country through an efficient, effective and easy-to-navigate system based on a digital platform.
TaRMS is a product of the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA)’s business process re-engineering (BPR) programme which was launched in 2022.
The BPR identified digitalization as the key aspect of improved service delivery to ZIMRA’s diverse clients and the configuration of TaRMS commenced in 2022 following an intensive user needs analysis and assessment.
Domestic taxes are crucial to national transformation and economic viability hence an efficient tax collection process is imperative.
TaRMS is being introduced to close the gaps that have historically affected the efficient collection of revenue.
The new system is set to be commissioned in October 2023 and is aligned with the National Development Strategy 1 priorities which include the ease of doing business, widening the tax base, and enabling a digital economy.
A simplified tax system that is effective and efficient increases compliance levels among taxpayers while reducing the cost of collection.
The TaRMS modules are set to enhance taxpayer experience on any device, automate complex tax processes, and improve tax collection.
The system has the capacity to go beyond collecting tax and revenue as it will be able to give full data analytics that will enable timely decision-making while empowering taxpayers to do self-service such as data entry.
Currently, ZIMRA is undertaking a taxpayer data cleansing exercise to ensure robust data integrity. TaRMS will be data-driven and this will result in increased taxpayer engagement, reduced cost of collection, prevention of fraud, and improved voluntary compliance.
By October 2023 when TaRMS goes live, the taxpayers will be able to seamlessly and efficiently process, on any device, taxpayer registration or reregistration; filing and returns processing; payments; refunds among other processes.
The system will also be integrated with enterprise Bus, ASYCUDA, SAP-FI, Registrar of Companies, Deeds & Intellectual Property, Civil Registry, and Banks.
ZIMRA is undergoing an intensive digitalization and transformation agenda and simplifying business processes and accessibility of the service platforms are some of the key objectives.
ZIMRA’s Five Year Strategic Plan envisions maximizing revenue collection, strengthening the institutional image, and increasing voluntary compliance by 2025 and an effective and efficient tax management system is central to the attainment of these strategic objectives.
TaRMS is being funded by a grant from the African Development Bank Group Ministry of Information, Publicity & Broadcasting Services ZimTreasury - Ministry of Finance & Econ Dev

ZIMRA Commissioner General Scoops Two Awards

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) bagged two awards at the prestigious Institute of Directors Zimbabwe (IODZ) Awards, which were held in Harare on 6 July 2023. The ZIMRA Commissioner General, Ms Regina Chinamasa, was crowned Director of the Year 2022 in the State Owned Enterprise and Parastatals Category and Women Director of the Year Award in the Women Director of the Year category respectively.

The Authority was recognised for its crucial role in promoting economic growth through revenue mobilisation and trade facilitation true to its mandate. ZIMRA managed to surpass its 2022 Annual Target by 24.14% with the nominal and real revenue growing 324.59% and 49.46% respectively. Through Ms Chinamasa’ s leadership and guidance, ZIMRA has continued to consistently surpass revenue targets as set by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development.

ZIMRA strives for excellent service delivery to its business partners and taxpayers in line with its motto “We are here to serve”. The Authority has harnessed technology to increase convenience to clients and reduce compliance costs for the taxpayers. Systems upgrade such as Asycuda, TARMS, e-Taxes, Single Window, Self-service kiosks have aided in efficient and effective service delivery. In addition to digitalization, other projects like the High Speed Scanners; Drones; Surveillance and Monitoring Centre; and FADMS are at advanced stages.

The Authority has successfully implemented the ZIMRA Contact Centre, which has transformed the tax and customs administration to a wholesome customer-centric experience. The Contact Centre has been well received by ZIMRA’s stakeholders and clients, due to swiftness in turnaround time thanks to a dedicated team of agents. The Client Satisfaction Index results have also shown an improvement in terms of service delivery, where ZIMRA achieved 67% against an annual target of 72% for the year reflective of improved customer service.

ZIMRA is a hub of regional and international tax information exchange by virtue of being a member of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. This is a multilateral body, which works in the area of transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes. The Forum is mandated to ensure a rapid and effective global implementation of the standards of transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes. Its work focuses on the exchange of information on request and automatic exchange of financial account information.

Ms Regina Chinamasa successfully implemented the Women in Taxation Forum, with the official launch event being held on 18 March 2022 in Mutare. This platform helps women in the taxation field to participate meaningfully in tax formulation as well as the administration processes. The mandate of the forum is to sufficiently empower and capacitate women and this is achieved through sharing ideas, creating networks and linkages while addressing matters that affect women in the taxation field.

Ms Regina Chinamasa is a staunch advocate of gender sensitive taxation policies evidenced by ZIMRA being part of The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Gender Seal, a volunteer certification programme which aims to recognise organisations that have made significant progress in promoting gender equality. The Seal aims to establish standards and performance benchmarks, provide a roadmap, concrete strategies and actions to put into practice institutional commitments; connect organisational structure with results and impact of public policies; and champion good performance and practices, and enhances institutional accountability on gender equality.

The Institute of Directors (IODZ) awards celebrates directors for their exceptional leadership and success. The awards are meant to recognise individuals contribution, strategy and corporate social responsibility.

The prime objectives of the MoU are to provide a broad base for co-operation with the intention of mobilising domestic revenue through the use of their respective personnel, facilities, electronics and resources to unearth economic and business activities being conducted within the economy.

The agreement also involves collaboration in the development of local software solutions to enhance domestic resource mobilisation for the economic development of Zimbabwe.

The two parties agreed to exchange information concerning strategies for revenue mobilisation and collection with a view to developing a common understanding of challenges being faced. This will include information on sector specific practices on tax levying and collection, together with implementation of special projects in different sectors to assess and implement tax compliance, share information on the formulation and implementation of compliance programmes with special emphasis on the use of technological and electronic systems.

ZIMRA and HIT shall provide each other with practical, technical and theoretical training on revenue mobilisation and development of software solutions in domestic resource mobilisation to enhance the capacity of ZIMRA, with an overall aim of improving its service delivery. They also agreed to establish a Joint Technical committee to oversee the implementation and administration of this MoU.

ZIMRA Acting Commissioner General, Mr Rameck Masaire applauded both parties for working tirelessly to produce this MoU.

“I am very cognisant about the process that ZIMRA and HIT went through so as to balance the interest of both parties and bear transformative ideas whose positive impact will be felt across the economy and beyond,” he said.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, the HIT Vice Chancellor Dr Eng. Q.C Kanhukamwe said the partnership is a convergence of minds and is pivotal in making breakthroughs in terms of resource mobilization and industrialisation.

ZIMRA busts fuel smuggling racket using newly acquired fuel testing equipment

In a development which enhances ZIMRA’s ability to apprehend fuel smugglers, the Authority has launched an advanced mobile fuel testing system which has since apprehended a fuel smuggler at Chirundu Border Post.

The newly acquired fuel testing equipment comprises of hydrometers, measuring cylinders, dip sticks, dipping pastes and water pastes.

The equipment, which is capable of detecting the nature of the product being imported or exported by a transporter, is a game changer expected to curtail and disarm all fuel smuggling syndicates who have been bringing fuel into the country without paying any duties due.

The water paste detects presence of water in the product being tested while the hydrometers measure density to determine whether the product is petrol, diesel or paraffin.

On a test run which was done on the 10th of November 2021 while launching the testing kit at Chirundu One Stop Border Post, the Authority detected a fuel tanker belonging to a transporter (name withheld) carrying water instead of the fuel declared at Forbes Border Post.

This was a clear case of transit fraud where the state was prejudiced of over a million dollars in revenue through decanting 39,754 litres of the fuel in Zimbabwe. The truck was seized and the case was reported at the ZRP Chirundu Station.

The Authority is in the process of conducting investigations on how the fuel was substituted with water. The investigations will include importers, transporters, Customs Clearing Agents and ZIMRA officials. The Authority will prosecute all parties who were involved in the smuggling syndicate.

ZIMRA has already started training its staff at all border posts to use the equipment in a bid to fight corruption. The authority has a zero tolerance for corruption and members of the public are urged to report corruption and resist bribes using ZIMRA’s hotline facilty, whistle blower facility or phone in.
