Taxation benefits for civil society organizations rescinded
The incoming Ministry of Finance and Planning (Gibreel Khalil) issued a decree abolishing all tax exemptions for civil society organizations.
According to the statement the decision will be applied to all civil society organizations except those working on infrastructure and fighting poverty. The statement did not provide any clarifications as to why it excluded only those CSOs working in these areas. It is worth mentioning that the majority of CSOs receiving tax benefits in Sudan are the UN agencies and the international humanitarian agencies.
