Background

With Finance and Public Enterprises Minister Ipumbu Shiimi having announced in yesterday’s National budget that the government has revised tax reforms that will put N$646 million back in the pockets of taxpayers by exempting all individual taxpayers from paying tax on the first N$100,000 of their income, starting 1 March 2024, we asked Cirrus Capital Economist Robert McGregor for a breakdown of the numbers.

Namibia’s largest-ever annual budget on Wednesday outlined a projected government spending of N$100.1 billion for the 2024/2025 financial year. Included in the budget was the promised increase in the income tax threshold. FnB Namibia Economist Ruusa Nandago explains how this will affect people paying income tax.
