“This was a very informative workshop I wish that E-works continues working with ZIMRA to bring us such workshops. It was an eye opener for me, I got to learn about a lot of things, not just the E-Services Platform, but also the numerous benefits of being tax compliant. I must add that I am also very impressed by the way E-works is complementing ZIMRA’s drive of tax compliance with their MYTaxMate android App, it’s a very novel idea,” said one elated client.
The workshop also saw the director of E-works providing a preview to a suite of Tax Compliance Fostering Android Applications packaged into one super app called MyTaxMate.
