Tax payers who carry out commercial activity but are neither assessed on actual or simplified basis are assessed on a proportion basis for each establishment and by each Council area on the basis of tariffs fixed within the following brackets :-

 Category A from   0   to 20.000  FCFA
      "   B  "  21.000 to 40.000  FCFA
      "   C  "  41.000 to 50.000  FCFA
      "   D  "  75.000 to 100.000 FCFA

Worthy of note is the point that Hawkers who move around need to pay the tax only in the Council area in which they reside. This tax covers business license tax, personal income tax and turnover tax.
