THE increase in the number of Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) registering to formalise operations of their businesses is set to enhance the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra)’s tax revenue collection. SMEs have become an integral part of the economy, and their contribution to the country’s gross domestic product has been growing over the years but Zimra has largely been unable to tap into the fast growing sector. As of last week a total of 11 191 SMEs had come forward to register with Zimra.
