Mobile e-Taxation Platform (MET) going live in Zambia!
After successful implementation and testing of our MET system at Zambia's Revenue Authority (ZRA), the country's first USSD tax service named TaxOnPhone (*858#) was officially released to all taxpayers on January 31, 2019!
We design and implement innovative solutions to a country's public finance problems in core processes such as tax administration, budgeting, tax/revenue collection.
Violence, human rights violations, child labour, smuggling and tax avoidance are some of the problems affecting global mineral supply chains. We help countries overcome these issues with innovative IT tools that make it easy to implement internationally accepted due dilligence guidances.
Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development recognizes MeT as an innovative solution to fiscal issues in developing countries
MeT is a product developed with Africa in mind: A solution to address structural deficits in the collection of internal revenue, taking advantage of Africa's global lead in the adoption of mobile technologies to give citizens cheap and easy access to the Internal Revenue Authority in their country.

GOTS MineralTrace provides a law-conform technological platform and auditing/certification framework that implements a secure trade documentation and proof of origin system over the mineral/precious stones supply chain, following an open-market approach.
The GOTS MineralTrace solution is an innovative tool to achieve formalization of artisanal small-scale mining, raw material trade documentation, proof of origin and improvement of mineral royalties collection.
Artisanal and small-scale miners (ASM) get better prices for their production, governments perceive urgently-needed tax revenue, and industries in importing countries can reliably audit that their supply chains conform to local and international due dilligence law.
Real-time monitoring of traded minerals from certified mine sites allow efficient on-the-ground assessment to identify compliant trade of gold and precious stones. This gives state institutions the tools needed to formalize ASM mining operations and improve tax and royalty collection. Thanks to our unique combination of highly secure and low-cost RFID tagging, rugged standard smartphones, offline operation capabilities, and a world-class geolocation web portal, GOTS MineralTrace for Gold has been successfully piloted and implemented in the African Great Lakes Region.
