Thedevelopment objective of the Modernization of Public Finance Management (PFM) Project for Myanmar is to support efficient,accountable, and responsive delivery of public services through the modernization of Myanmar's PFM systems and strengtheninginstitutional capacity. The project has five components: a.         Improving revenue mobilization through bringing more revenues from natural resources on budget and strengthening taxadministration b.         Responsive Planning and Budget Preparations c.         Supporting Effective Budget Execution and Financial Reporting d.        Fostering External Oversight and Accountability e.         Establishing a Sustainable Institutional Platform and Skills-base for PFM For a more detailed understanding of the scope of theProject and its governance and organizational structure, kindly consult the project appraisal document (PAD): http://documents.worldbank.org/curated/en/2014/02/19393607/myanmar-modernization-public-finance-management-project. Component A This component initially focuses on piloting reforms on the largest and highest capacity taxpayers,through the establishment of a Large Taxpayer's Office (LTO). This office will operate under a functional (rather than tax type)organizational structure, will pilot a move to the Self-Assessment System,and will begin to employ contained IT solutions needed tomanage taxpayer registration, strengthen compliance, manage risk systematically, employ risk-based auditing, and monitor and managearrears. In future it is hopedthat IRD would step out from its traditional methods of tax assessments and collections but apply the advantages offered bymoderninformation technology and make the assessments and collectionof taxes more efficient and thorough. It also involves a balancedapproach in giving the taxpayers good services and lowering the tax burden on the taxpayers. These programs are being carried outwith the aim to improve the investment climate and also promote equitable, just andtransparent tax management in thecountry.
