Malawi re-imposes internet services VAT
- 30 July 2013 | Richard Asquith
Value Added Tax has been reintroduced on internet services from 1 July 2013.
The government made the move in the latest budget, imposing 16.5% VAT. This has led to an immediate rise in prices from the internet service providers, which will hit the fast growing sector and impeded its success as a platform for e-cash payments.
