During the felicitating programme, jointly organised by department’s Nepalgunj regional office and Nepalgunj Chamber of Commerce and Industry director general of the department Tanka Mani Sharma said the department is working toward making the tax system simple by amending tax related laws.
“The department will make the tax system simpler in the next fiscal year by making necessary amendment in the tax laws and regulations,” he said, adding that the government would act tough against individuals or firms involved in evading taxes, issuing fake VAT bill and not issuing invoice to the customers, after the simplification of taxation system.
Sharma, on the occasion, also felicitated the first businessperson from the region to register with VAT Kanhaiya Lal Baidhya.
