The revenue minister said it will enable the real-time capture and monitoring of sales, notifying the revenue office how much tax should be collected.

Tialavea Tionisio Hunt told parliament the programme will start in January.

He also said a new x-ray scanner for cargo at Apia's main wharf is due to arrive next year.
