1) Background and rationale for support

Sudan’s tax collection is low, at about 5 per cent of GDP in 2020 down from 6 per cent in 2019. With multiple and complex structural weaknesses, tax revenue is estimated to fall further to 4.8 percent of GDP in 2021. Tax collection in Sudan falls behind that of comparator countries. The tax-to-GDP ratio in Sudan is at the bottom of countries with similar characteristics and per capita GDP. Sudan’s tax revenue performance has been relatively stagnant over the past two decades and remains significantly be-low potential.
Income tax accounts for less than 10 percent of tax revenue, in part because of the historical im-portance of oil revenue but also because of numerous tax holidays and exemptions in the Investment Law and a large informal sector, estimated at more than 60 percent of GDP. Indirect taxes, specifically through customs, excises, and VAT, are the main sources of tax revenue, but have too many rates.
Tax revenue mobilization remains a key macroeconomic and development challenge for Sudan. A sustained and consistent increase in revenue will not only lead to direct fiscal benefits but can also contribute to economic and social stability. Economic stability in terms of low rates of inflation and predictable exchange rate movement requires increased dependence on revenue from real sources and reduced dependence on government borrowing from financial institutions. Fiscal discipline is a prerequisite for the success of ongoing macroeconomic reforms in Sudan, including managed exchange rate policies. Furthermore, empirical evidence shows that tax revenue contributes to economic growth when the revenue is greater than 12.75 per cent of GDP.

2) Scope and tasks of work

Under the direct supervision of the Economic Affairs Officer and the overall supervision of the Director of the Sub-regional Office for North Africa of the ECA (ECA SRO-NA), the National consultant will undertake the following tasks:

• Assist and provide support to the STC in its administrational reforms.
