About the project
Information-Streams developed a web based revenue monitoring framework that not only monitors and reviews the performance of individual taxes against the set targets but also tracks movements in the different tax bases so as to better inform management on the possible areas of improvement in both tax policy and administration.
Information-Streams supports the Tax Policy Department (TPD) in creating a system for gathering relevant data on the tax bases and profiling of current tax payers at both Sectoral and categorical (Small, Medium or large Tax Payers) levels and be able to track all their transactions from purchases of raw materials (local or imported) to the sale of final products.
Information generated is used to improve modeling and forecasting of revenues, as well as understanding the changes in behavior of taxpayers and how that may affect the tax bases and the amount of tax payable
What we did

The systems is able to track all their transactions from Purchase of raw materials (local or imported) to the sale of the final products.
Data warehouse is layered, each layer having different granularity.
From very low level (staging data) to high (analytical data). Data can be extracted at any level for reporting or any other manipulations
Developed a web based tool
Data governance framework was put in place.

A Central Reporting Repository for the Tax Policy department is now in place, this has led to consistency in reporting and analysis
The system enables the tax policy department staff to search and update data on different tax head (Income Tax, LED, VAT, Trade taxes )
