Technology is increasingly becoming a key and inevitable force globally in modelling business processes. New technological trends are emerging and rapidly advancing requiring business to either realign operations or vanish. Embracing these digital disruptions in revenue administration is therefore critical if revenue agencies are to remain relevant in supporting the Governments’ resource mobilization agenda. The discussions in this thematic area will focus on application of emerging digital technologies such as Block chain, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence among others, in revenue administration taking into considering emerging issues such as security of data systems and traceability of business transactions, and a review of opportunities presented by these technologies.

Under this thematic area a plenary discussion will be held guided by the following topic;

  • Exploring New Frontiers for Revenue Administration: Technology as an enabler
  • Combating tax crimes through digitization
