The Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Services, FIRS, Muhammad Nami, has appealed for harmonisation of tax systems among member states of Commonwealth Association of Tax Administrators, CATA.

Nami made the appeal in Abuja at the 42nd Technical Conference of CATA, with the theme: “Tax Administration in the Digital Era”.

The FIRS boss, who is also the President of CATA, described it as part of a reform that must happen for the governments to plug leakages and shore-up revenue.

The five-day conference brings together tax administrators, practitioners to proffer plausible solutions to the contemporary tax issues.

According to Nami, in recent times, there has been an upsurge of disruptive technological innovations in the business environment.

Nami further urged the 47 member States of CATA to brace-up to the challenges that technology brought to the commercial space.
