The commitment seeks to promote increased tax revenues by ensuring the prevention of tax avoidance and evasion. This will address the issues of multiple taxation and make businesses pay their fair share of tax. It will also create equity such that local businesses are competitive, can create jobs and contribute to economic development. Tax avoidance and evasion have resulted in reduction of revenue needed to finance development and created an unfavorable environment for local entrepreneurs. This results in inability of government to provide sound services for citizens’ welfare and failure of small businesses, thereby increasing poverty.
