Preps for FinGaz tax Indaba on course

PREPARATIONS are in full swing for this year’s edition of The Financial Gazette’s annual Tax Review Breakfast, scheduled for February 29, according to the organisers.
The high-profile event, to be held at the Meikles Hotel in Harare, will convene industry leaders, tax professionals, and government officials for a critical dialogue on pressing fiscal issues.
The Financial Gazette’s general manager for sales and marketing, Shingirai Chirikuutsi, said the publication takes pride in providing a platform for interactive dialogue between business and government.

Regina Chinamasa, Commissioner-General of the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority

“The Indaba, now in its sixth year, has always sought to facilitate convergence because we believe it to be crucial to Zimbabwe’s economic agenda to reach middle-income status by 2030.
“This year’s meeting, like all the previous ones, but with the benefit of the refined model, is focused on this and preparations are on course,” Chirikuutsi said.
The meeting will feature some of the country’s top economic experts.
Alongside keynote speaker, the Commissioner-General of the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra), Regina Chinamasa, the event will also host the vice president of the Zimbabwe Institute of Tax Accountants (Zita), Simon Gwenzi, and the chief executive of the SMEs Association of Zimbabwe, Farai Mutambanegwe. Renowned tax experts Marvellous Tapera and Robert Kamangira will also speak at the Indaba.
This year’s forum, jointly supported by Zimra, Zita, and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Zimbabwe, promises an in-depth exploration of the evolving tax landscape. A key focus will be the government’s efforts to integrate the informal sector into the tax net, a contentious policy generating significant debate. Beyond this specific issue, the Indaba will delve into broader challenges related to tax compliance and the overall impact of the tax environment on investment and business operations.
The interactive format fosters direct engagement with Zimra, ensuring key concerns from various sectors reach the relevant authorities. The tax indaba serves as a crucial platform for shaping Zimbabwe’s fiscal landscape.
By bringing together key stakeholders for open discussion, the event contributes to a more efficient and equitable tax system for the nation.
