The list of investments that give rise to reduction of tax when the appropriate formalities have been completed has been expanded to include :-

  • The acquisition, renewal or installation of production, transformation, conditioning and conservation, equipment in agricultural and food processing activities. However, the minimum qualifying investment has been increased to 25 Million Franc CFA.
  • The decision of the Minister of Economy and Finance approving the tax reduction is notified by registered letter. The Tax Department verifies the investment documents and any fraud found in the documents results in the re-imposition of the tax evaded with appropriate penalties.
