Automated Tracking System enters the operational phase

(Togo First) - Yesterday, Pré Simfétchéou, director of the cabinet of the Prime Minister’s office, led a field visit to assess progress made in implementing the automated tracking system (ATS) which was recently launched by the Togolese Revenue Authority (OTR).  

In the framework of the visit which was organized by the OTR, four companies were inspected : Société Nouvelle de Boissons (SNB), Voltic, Brasserie du Bénin (BB), and Cristal. 

Apart from BB where the tracking system is yet to be fully operational - due to the company’s large size, all other companies visited have marked their products. 

Commenting on the development, the tax commissioner, Adoyi Essowa-Vana, declared that “local operators understood the importance of the initiative and installed the system at the scheduled date.” 

The SAM, let’s recall, aims at combating smuggling and tackling unfair competition. This is in a context where Togo records nearly 14 billion CFA in tax losses, yearly.
