An online taxation system is to be trialled in Solomon Islands for possible use across the Pacific.
According to the Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme tax departments in the region still use manual processes to receive paper tax returns.
The new digital system aims to provide more payment options and reduce cash handling.
It will automate the receipt, assessment, payment and reimbursement of all tax types involving both, corporate and individual clients of the Inland Revenue Department.
The Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme's Abigail Chang told Koroi Hawkins it could also help to expand financial inclusion in the Solomon Islands, where about two thirds of the adult population do not access formal financial services.
