The National Revenue Authority has launched the re-construction of a $2.5 million South Sudan Tax Academy complex for capacity building of its staff and stakeholders to ensure effective compliance with tax systems.

The construction is being financed by the government with a budget worth $1.5 million while the African Development Bank is expected to pour in another $1 million for the completion of the complex.

The project includes renovation of the building destroyed during the conflict and the construction of the NRA staff quarters.

Once completed in the next six months, the facility will ensure the training of customs agents on freight forwarding and logistics.

Patrick Mugoya, the Commissioner General of the National Revenue Authority was speaking to journalists in Juba on Friday.

“The government has started with 1.5 million dollars. For the institute to start delivering its programs, we expect to spend 2.5 million dollars. The African Development Bank will come in with additional 1 million dollars.”

“This would be for NRA staff, tax officers, customs officers but also will offer a training related to management and leadership development for tax officers and customs officers”.

The project is being executed by Infinity Construction and Engineering Company.

It is expected to usher in the training of the NRA staff including tax and custom officers on management and leadership development.

The institute will also enroll key stakeholders in the taxation system including tax consultants and lawyer and offer them relevant skills to enable them to comply with tax systems.
