Online tax to improve efficiency

by
Wichit Sirithaveeporn

The Revenue department hopes that by bringing tax payments online and investing in new IT systems, it can improve the efficiency in collecting and monitoring payments by 5.5 million companies nationwide.

Suparat Khawatkul, director-general of the Revenue Department, said audit and examination was time-consuming under the current "paper-based" system. The new "'E-Revenue" programme would allow officials to call up tax payment histories for different companies with just a click of a button.

A total of 1,500 teams nationwide would rely on 8,000 terminals under the new system, which would be linked to the Commercial Registration Department and other databases.

Suri Buakhom, director of the Information Technology Office, said that within two years all 20,000 officials of the Revenue Department would have their own computer stations under a 300 million Baht programme.

The programme would bring 90% of all tax procedures online. Two thousand additional terminals are scheduled to be installed this year.

Earlier this month, the Revenue Department announced a joint programme with local banks to allow electronic tax payment and filing through the Internet and ATMs.
