Tax principles are concepts by which a government is meant to be guided in designing and implementing an equitable taxation regime. Below we list our 7 principles of a good tax system:

• Simple

• Fair

• Transparent

• Progressive (take proportionately more from the rich)

• Predictable (consistent over time)

• Collectable (cost efficient)

• Incentivise productivity
