In addition, BURS is charged with the responsibility of collecting Customs and Excise duties on behalf of the Southern African Customs Union (SACU). Other responsibilities include accounting for the revenue collected on behalf of the Government. BURS plays a vital role in protecting Botswana’s borders and collecting the revenue that our government needs to provide services to the people of Botswana. In order for Botswana’s “Vision 2016” pillars to become a reality, we all need to make voluntary tax compliance a critical national priority.


Over the past five years, tax revenue as a proportion of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has been more or less stable at around 20%. Further, the tax revenue as a proportion of government budget has been increasing consistently since 2005/06, signifying the growing importance of the tax revenue in the economy.
