The Commissioner General for South Sudan’s National Revenue Authority (NRA) Dr. Patrick Mugoya on has promised to increase collection of non-oil revenues by 30%.

Dr. Patrick Mugoya on Wednesday presented a 5-year Strategic Plan and the NRA’s key Human Resources policies, which have been approved by its Board of Directors, awaiting the Government’s approval. 

“If this year’s’ strategic plan (2022-2027) is approved by the government, it will transform the NRA to the level of other National Revenue Authorities in the region and it will enhance the collection of non-oil revenues in the Country.” Said Dr. Mugoya.

He said the strategic plan projected the performance of non-oil revenue for the next 5 years (2022-2027). 

He added that the NRA is committed to its core values, transparency, accountability, professionalism, integrity, and teamwork adding that the taxman is committed to mobilizing collection of non-oil revenues for the National Development.

The NRA has not been disclosing how much money it collects per month.

President Salva Kiir said the biggest challenge facing the NRA is the lack of transparency in revenue collections and to that end, directed the NRA Leadership to address the loopholes and collect the revenues with transparency and integrity.
