Extractives revenue

The right fiscal policy and strong tax collection mechanisms are integral to an inclusive extractive sector. Often subject to its own bespoke tax regime, the extractive sector can generate a disproportionate amount of revenue for the state and help transform social services and public investment. However, faced with sophisticated multinational extractive companies or informal artisanal mining networks, governments and tax authorities constantly need to adapt their fiscal frameworks and improve their tax collection capacity. Cowater works with governments to design stronger fiscal policy for the extractives sector and to reform tax collection mechanisms, from international taxation to production controls.
