Head of government Saad Eddine El Othmani stressed the need for a "comprehensive" and "in-depth" revision of the Moroccan tax system on Friday in Skhirat.
Rabat – “The continuous changes in the system over the years… have resulted in a lack of harmony between the different tax provisions, a fact that requires a comprehensive, in-depth and well thought out revision of this system,” Saad Eddine El Othmani said at the opening of the 3rd National Tax Conference, held under the theme “Tax Equality”.
El Othmani discussed the multidimensional nature of taxation and the common awareness of the importance of the tax system as a driving force for the economy and development that contributes to the creation of wealth.
According to his speech, the Moroccan tax system should be more just and equitable. He noted that the theme of the meeting is in line with the ambition to adopt an inclusive social and economic approach.
“We hope that this meeting results in recommendations and proposals related to the different opinions of Moroccan society”, he added.
The conference will outline a more efficient, transparent, equitable, and competitive tax system based on a broader tax base and lower rates. It aims to promote the principles of the rule of law in the field of taxation and draw on best practices at the international level.
