Zambia Sugar Company is involved in Tax Avoidance, maintains ActionAid

ActionAid International Zambia Country Director Pamela Chisanga has maintained that the new investigation carried out by her organization which has exposed Zambia Sugar Company’s tax avoidance is a true reflection of the situation on the ground.
Speaking at a public forum in Lusaka this morning, Ms. Chisanga said the report on the avoidance of tax by Zambia Sugar is not a fabrication of facts but exposes a serious anomaly that needs to be addressed.
Ms. Chisanga said that the report which is a result of experts going through the records of the multinational company and tracing its activities both locally and internationally provides an example of how the country is losing revenue through tax avoidance by big multinational companies.
She said there is need therefore for government to ensure that investors in the country live up to their obligation of remitting taxes.
