Tax, Customs Experts Association Revives Formation

Professionals engaged in tax and customs services revived their attempt to form an association.

The formation of Ethiopia Tax & Customs Professionals Association was initiated seven years ago but initially failed owing to denials by the Civic and Societies Agency, according to Fessehatsion Mengistu (PhD), a founding member of the association.

Now with 100 members, the Association drafted its charter and submitted the document to the Agency. The Ethiopian Revenue & Customs Authority endorsed the formation of the association.

The Agency denied the license on the basis that it only accepts professional associations who have expertise directly related to the profession.

“The educational system of the country doesn’t acknowledge certification for tax and customs services,” Fissehatsion said.
