TAAN organizes tax, VAT training
February 20 , 2013
As a part of disseminating
information about income tax and VAT and increasing tax compliance level of its
member agencies, Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN) on February 17
organized a daylong training on tax and Value Added Tax (VAT) in Kathmandu.
Representatives of a total of 31
member agencies attended the first training. The association plans to organize
the training for its member agencies in the future as well.
Dr Chandra Mani Adhikari and Hari Rayamajhi were the
resource persons for the training.
Krishna Hari Khatri, coordinator
of TAAN’s HR and Training Department, said the training was organized as many
member agencies are unaware about government rules and regulations regarding
tax and VAT. “In the lack of adequate information about tax and VAT, many
agencies had to pay hefty fine in the past. The training will stop that,”
Khatri said, adding that the training will also increase tax compliance among
TAAN plans to organize similar
training in the future as well.
