Small businesses are not necessarily small earners; rates need to be enough to encourage firms at the upper end of the threshold to join the general system and enough to encourage informal entrepreneurs to comply. Recommendation, as a way of ~reducing the burden of income taxes on SSBs the tax authority should find a way of assessing the ax, in that the profitability ofSSB5 should pay early in the financial year in order to give enough time to the businesses to pay their dues rather than making an assessment and demand for payment spontaneously. The URA should improve awareness amongst the taxpayers of the need to pay taxes and how their tax liability is determined and the time process of the tax assessment.
