It was recommended that the Permanent Secretary (PS) in collaboration with the National Revenue Authority (NRA) should ensure that the revenue projection/budget for 2014 to 2016 is made available to the ASSL within 15 days upon receipt of the report.

Officially responding, the PS said that revenue projection/target was available in the Ministry’s Performance Tracking Table for the period 2014 -2016.

The Auditor commented however, saying the revenue projection/budget for the period under review was not submitted as recommended and therefore the issue remains unresolved.

Furthermore, according to the ASSL 2016 report, revenue receipts were not submitted in respect of work permit and factory inspection fees from the National Revenue Authority to confirm revenue collected and recorded in the cashbook for 2014 to 2016 for an amount totaling Le8,981,207,000. This was in violation of section 42(2) of the FMR 2007.

It was recommended that the Permanent Secretary in collaboration with the NRA should ensure that the receipts in support of revenue collected totaling Le8,981,207,000 are made available to the ASSL within 15 days of receipt of the report.

In his official response, the PS said: “This issue falls within the purview of NRA to submit comprehensive list of all NRA receipts for the period under review, however the Ministry has already informed NRA to make available revenue receipts for the period under review. And the Ministry’s file copies are also available.” The issue remains partly resolved.
