Tax rates in Malawi are lower than in most of the countries in southern Africa.

This is according to the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA).

The Head of Corporate Affairs, Steve Kapoloma made these remarks in an interview with the Malawi News Agency, in reaction to widespread concerns from the public that the revenue collecting agency is overtaxing Malawians.

Kapoloma explained that a study conducted by the International Monetary Fund-IMF, comparing Malawi and countries within the region like Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Kenya among others, finds that the taxes in Malawi are sometimes lower.

For instance, Malawians pay 30% of their monthly income for Pay as You Earn (PAYE), while people in South Africa pay 41%, Zimbabweans 50 and Mozambicans 32.

According to Kapoloma, only Tanzania equals Malawi at 30 percent.

He warned that MRA would deal with any type of tax evasion in the country to make sure that the body meets its goals.

    I must show some appreciation to you for bailing me out of this particular dilemma. As a result of looking throughout the internet and getting techniques that were not beneficial, I thought my entire life was gone. Living without the answers to the difficulties you’ve fixed as a result of your entire post is a serious case, as well as those that would have badly damaged my career if I hadn’t noticed your web blog. Your main mastery and kindness in maneuvering the whole lot was very helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a stuff like this. I can at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your skilled and result oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to suggest your blog to any person who would like recommendations on this subject.
