The most spoken about quotation in the accountancy profession is “professional accountants must stop doing the same thing differently, but should do different things”. Does this signal the death or redundancy of the professional accountant? No it merely implies that the role of the professional accountant must change in order to remain relevant in the disruptor environment. The professional accountant must make a conscious decision to accept and partner technology as a tool to transcend from transactional of compliance serves to strategy business and management partners. To do different things means that professional accountant must up-skill, re-skill and refine their competence to function as information brokers, viz. making the paradigm shift from being producers of information to becoming interpreter and users of information to support strategy decision-making. This requires the skill set to transition from hindsight (producers of historical information) to insight (integrated analysis and thinking) to foresight (strategy foresight and direction). Professional accountants must use their competencies and experiences differently.
Tax penalties to be written off with e-registration
NAMIBIANS in the red with their tax payments will be given a chance at a clean-slate as the Ministry of Finance is introducing an incentive programme which will see the waiving of penalties charged on tax accounts if citizens update their tax payments through the newly launched Integrated Tax Administration System (ITAS) online portal.
Speaking at a press conference today, finance minister Calle Schlettwein stated that this incentive will encourage taxpayers not only to register as e-filers but also to continually use the online service.
The ITAS became operational in January this year. The overall objective of ITAS is to improve service delivery to taxpayers.
The system provides many online benefits such as 24/7 real time access to a taxpayer tax account, a taxpayer self-service facility, online filing of tax returns, single view of taxpayer’s account and accelerated processing of tax forms with real-time notification on outcome.
Schlettwein stated that the ministry’s aim is to reach a target of 90% of the taxpayer population to register as e-filers by June 2020, as well as see a shift from manual interaction between Inland Revenue Department and taxpayers to a continuous use of the online platform.
The minister stated that reaching this target is necessary because the ministry may in future require taxpayers to file all tax returns electronically without an option of manual filing.
The incentive programme covers the period since the launch of ITAS and is ending on 30 June 2020.
In order to qualify for this incentive, a taxpayer must register on ITAS portal as an e-filer; and update through online submission all tax accounts for all tax type in respect of tax returns that might be outstanding.
Once the taxpayer has fulfilled the above conditions, penalties charged on any of the tax account will automatically be waived. That means that the taxpayer does not need to make any form of application to have the penalties waived.
Taxpayers who have already registered as e-filers since the launch of ITAS also benefit from this incentive. Penalties for those without outstanding returns will be waived automatically, while those with outstanding returns must first electronically file them in order to qualify for the penalty waiver.

Brian Black campaigns for arrests in GIPF saga
THE Prosecutor General of Namibia’s recent announcement, that no person could be held accountable after 20 years of investigation into the looting of more than N$660 million from the Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) should under no circumstance be left unchallenged.
In this regard Brian Black, a Namibian entrepreneur and the current Chairperson of the Namibian Manufacturers Association launched a campaign in which he advocates for accountability and the arrest of the guilty parties in the GIPF missing millions saga before the Presidential and National Assembly Elections takes place in November this year.
When he launched his campaign he called on all Namibians irrespective of political persuasions to rise with him against the two evils of corruption and maladministration.
Black says in the preamble to the campaign that he believes that the best time for Namibians to stand up against corruption and maladministration was yesterday and that the second best time is now.
All Namibians can show their support for the campaign by signing a petition online. Black intends to hand the petition over to President Hage Geingob early in October.
“Our president owes it to the nation to demonstrate his commitment to the noble fight against corruption by instructing all our law enforcement agents to ensure at least one arrest before this year’s election,” Black said.
He requested his fellow countrymen to take action by signing the petition online by following the link: http://chng.it/ZMnSjLWH
“The future of the country will not be destroyed by those doing evil, but by our silence. The choice on how history will one day judge us is solely in our hands,” Black stated.
Black requested that the people signing the petition should also share the link on their social media pages to ensure that it spreads far and wide and to garner as many signatures as possible.
