  Thursday, August 10, 2006  by Admin
  "Internet Governance" was one of the core issues of the 2005 World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis. The compromise arrangement reached in Tunis basically confirms the role of the "Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers" (ICANN) and the specific responsibilities and controls exercised by the United States.

158. The Impact of E-Commerce on Taxation
  Tuesday, July 18, 2006  by Admin
  In 1994, e-commerce or literally accepting orders over a secure web site was considered a leading edge. Today, e-business is more pervasive and complex. The term e-business can be distinguished from e-commerce by the fact that e-business is broader and of a higher generation or rather a superset of e-commerce. In Tanzania there are no known studies made to establish the positive impact of e-commerce or e-business. In reality the positive impact of e-business outweigh the negative ones. However, there is a growing concern and fear by Revenue Administrators that companies using e-business could easily hide their earnings and thereby deny the Revenue Authority substantial revenue.
