Domestic revenue mobilization

Tax systems are levers for economic development and effective tools to reduce inequalities and improve citizen wellbeing. Cowater has three decades of experience helping governments broaden their revenue base through well-designed tax systems. Our experts understand the impacts of discriminatory tax and fiscal policy and promote equitable systems and practices instead. To establish a wide and equitable tax base, we establish and support tax units and departments. We collaborate closely with partners to evaluate, structure and redesign tax policies and legislation. We ensure policy is accurately reflected in administrative practice and support the reorganization of revenue departments using modern and risk-based approaches.
