South Africa Again Fails To Pass Border Management Bill

by Lorys Charalambous, Tax-News.com, Cyprus

09 June 2017


Opposition lawmakers in South Africa have again blocked legislation that would have created a dedicated customs authority.

Opposition parties prevented the passage of the Border Management Authority Bill by walking out prior to the vote. They claim that the bill will put revenue collection in jeopardy by appointing an agency other than the South African Revenue Service with responsibility for collecting border taxes.

The same happened in May, when opposition members of parliament walked out of the National Assembly, meaning there were not the required number of lawmakers present, despite enough votes in support of the bill being collected.
