Abstract

Sub-Saharan Africa is contending with an unprecedented health and economic crisis—one that, in just a few months, has jeopardized years of hard-won development gains and upended the lives and livelihoods of millions.

International Monetary Fund
The Article IV Consultation with the Kingdom of Swaziland discusses efforts to broaden the tax base and improve tax administration, in particular through the introduction of a value-added tax and the establishment of a Revenue Authority. The depreciation of the nominal exchange rate along with the South African rand, to which it is pegged, impacted positively on the export sector. Prompt and automatic pass-through of international price increases would also help depoliticize price adjustments.

In Swaziland, government tax revenue has remained broadly stable over the past decade at a level slightly below 30 percent of gross domestic product. The sources of tax revenue are heavily concentrated, with customs receipts based on a revenue-sharing arrangement under the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) alone contributing more than one-half of total tax revenue, and company and personal income taxes (some 30 percent of tax revenue) and sales tax receipts (another 13 percent) accounting for the bulk of the remainder.
