Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) has announced that it has failed to meet its 2015/16 tax projections with over K9.18 billion in the face of a lousy economic situation the country is sailing through.

Positive strides in revenue collected in February

Making the revelations in its revenue performance report for February issued, the exchequer also announced beating its targets for last month.

“In the month of February 2016, Malawi Revenue Authority collected MK 44.27 billion exceeding the target of K43.65 billion by 0.6 billion (1.4 percent). Cumulatively, total tax revenues collected during FY2015/16 to date amounted to MK 373.41 billion against a projection of MK 382.59 billion, representing a 98 percent collection” announced MRA in a statement released today.

However, MRA failed to collect about K1 billion from big businesses and companies in corporate tax.

“A negative variance of 26 percent was recorded under Corporate Tax by a collection of MK2.2 billion against a monthly target of MK3 billion”.

Increased enforcement efforts and improved levels of taxpayers’ compliance has been accredited as reasons MRA has collected more than 17 percent above the target on Exercise. In contrast, import duty registered a deficit of 6 percent below the target of K4.68 billion for February.

  1. MRA is useless even telling them the malpractices these amwenye are doing invading tax they r ending up taking bribes n they r now building town houses

  2. Government Revenue Income comes from different Resources, if its FINANCE RESTRUCTURING Programmes Are in place.
    Creating foreign and Local Investors window will lead a Prosperer goals of any Economic Growth.
    But Malawi Govt is a different story,
    They make monies by issuing pasports and increasing its Prices.
    They charge heavily on Duty Fee Custom from anyone who buys foreign products from abroad to Malawi Border Posts. In Malawi, Industrization is dead.
    Malawians go outside Malawi to buy foreign manufactured goods, bekoz Malawi has got no sized manufacturing industries to produce quality and standards goods.
    Who to blame here?
    The So called Government of Malawi is in a deep sleep.

  15. MRA EMPLOYEES MAKE DEALS WITH BUSINESS PEOPLE AT THE PORT OF ENTRY OR POST OFFICE. THEY REDUCE OR NO TAX AND GIVEN MONEY AFTER WORK HOURS. TAKE A LOOK AT THE CLERKS. THEY DRIVE EXPENSIVE CARS, BUILD EXPENSIVE HOUSES ABOVE THIER SALARIES. ACB NEEDS TO INVESTIGATE MRA EMPLOYEES. GO AND FIND OUT THOSE BIG HOUSES. WHERE DO THEY GET THE MONEY FROM?
