Their goal is to familiarize these groups with DigiTax, ensuring compliance with eTIMS requirements.
Washington Ogol, CEO of Statsspeak Group Limited, highlighted the potential impact of this partnership: “Taxes are a certainty of life, and the process should be intuitive and growth-inducing. We are excited to work with DigiTax to transform taxes into a tool for fostering a better business environment.”
