Mumbai: Country's largest software services firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) said it has bagged a three-year contract from Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) for modernization of its domestic tax system.

No financial details were disclosed. The scope of the project includes providing an integrated tax software application based on TCS's taxation framework, taxpayer 24x7 portal for e-services delivery, data migration, training, roll-out, warranty and operational support, TCS said in a statement.

This is TCS's third revenue and tax system automation project in the African region after implementation for Uganda Revenue Authority and ongoing implementation for Kenya Revenue Authority, it added.

TCS has done more than 15 tax framework implementations in India, seven in US and two in Africa.

"The framework will help Zambian government deliver taxation services to its citizens as well as provide an effective monitoring system for its tax officials," TCS vice president and global head (government industry solutions unit) Tanmoy Chakrabarty said.

ZRA, as part of its tax reforms and modernization programme, has engaged TCS to provide an integrated and multi-tax system covering VAT, Income Tax, Pay-As-You-Earn, Presumptive Tax, Turnover Tax, Mineral Royalty Tax, Excise, Property Transfer Tax, Medical Levy and Withholding Tax.
