eGenix Talks: Ghana VAT Project

EuroPython 2009 - Making 50 Mio. EUR per year using Python

Running the Ghana VAT Service on Python - showcasing an eGenix Custom Project.

eGenix has recently completed the first phase of a custom project for a client which will greatly simplify the process of managing VAT taxation in the Sub-Sahara African country Ghana.

After nation-wide roll-out, the project will enable the Ghana VAT Service to manage and control the country's VAT taxation in real-time.

This short lightning talk was given at EuroPython 2009 and outlines some of the aspects of the project. The solution has the potential of changing the way developing countries approach VAT taxation and can help raise the tax income of governments in difficult times like these,  allowing governments to invest in better education, health care and infrastructure.
