Minining tax database for Africa

FERDI publishes the first tax and legal database which specify the tax regime applied to industrial gold mining companies in 21 African countries from the 1980s to 2016.

On september 2016, FERDI published the first tax and legal database which specify the tax regime applied to industrial gold mining companies in 21 African countries from the 1980s to 2016 (updated : October 2018). Over 700 legal texts were necessary to build the database. The database featuring three major innovations: (i) an inventory of taxes and duties (rate, base and exemptions) payable during the prospecting phase and mining phase of a gold mining project; (ii) an entirely new level of historical depth; (iii) the link between each piece of tax information and its legal source.

This database is useful to know the evolution of the gold mining tax systems, compare the gold mining tax systems of different African countries, compare the gold mining taxation between different mining projects in the same country and assess the mineral resource rent sharing between investors and governments.
