The National Board of Revenue (NBR) are taking steps towards strengthening the existing efforts of the Government of The People’s Republic of Bangladesh (GoB) in the area of public financial management reforms. The current VAT system of Bangladesh needs to be restructured due to outdated administrative practices. In order to overcome certain challenges, a new VAT Law was passed by the National Parliament in November 2012. The Government of Bangladesh approved a World Bank funded Development Project – VAT Improvement Program (VAT Online Project) in 2014. The developing system by VAT Online project will connect 287 VAT circle offices, 84 divisional offices, 12 commissionerates, two directorates, three appeal commissionerates and a tribunal in a single platform. It will also integrate with the Bangladesh Bank, the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CGA) and the income tax department of NBR with it. Once automated, the system will substantially increase government revenue through identifying non-compliant taxpayers. It will also work to ensure revenue mobilization and transparency in the VAT administration system as well as a modern tax administration.
