Govt increases telecom taxes to 9%

12 Jan 2018

The Chadian government has increased the annual fees paid by mobile network operators from 7% of annual revenue to 9%, Agence Ecofin reports. The higher levy came into effect from 1 January this year and follows several years of tax increases, the rate having increased from 4% to 7% between 2014 and 2016. Earnings from the tax will be distributed between the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Post (L’Autorite de Regulation des Communications Electroniques et des Postes, ARCEP), the ICT Development Agency, the National School of ICT and the treasury, whilst a small portion will go towards national security.
