Measuring the compliance costs of taxation excise duties 1995-96
Shekidele, Christine M.S / 1999


The study analyses the nature and type of compliance costs of excise duties in Tanzania. Data provided by the respondents in the questionnaire to measure the compliance costs incurred by firms producing traditional excise goods in 1995-96 is used. The study concludes that compliance costs in less developed countries are relatively high compared to those in developed countries. Moreover, that compliance costs are regressive in nature falling more heavily on small firms.

As such the government should take remedial measures in order to minimize compliance costs without reducing revenue.
