Combined Harare Residents’ Association (CHRA) director Mr Mfundo Mlilo has filed a normal court application contesting the recently announced 2% per every dollar tax on electronic money transfers.
The High Court dismissed Mlilo’s initial challenge on the basis that it was not urgent. Mlilo who is being represented by Mafume Law Chambers, also seeks nullification of Statutory Instrument 205-2018 which is the enabling law for the implementation of the new tax regime. Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube is cited as the sole respondent in his official capacity.
In his application, Mlilo argues the Finance (Rate and Incidence of Intermediated Monetary Transfer Tax) Regulations Statutory Instrument (SI205-2018) is unconstitutional, arguing Ncube cannot amend an Act of Parliament in terms of the law.
