Missing tax refunds from Zambian government directly affects mining communities

The Kansanshi mine , owned by Kansanshi Mining PLC and ZCCM, is still waiting to receive millions of US dollars in Value Added Tax (VAT) refunds from the Zambian Revenue Agency. Despite claims that a payment of around ZMK 857,005,562 (USD $85,700,556) was made to the mining company, Kansanshi Mining argued that no VAT refunds were received in 2014. This information was revealed by analysing seven Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) reports published from 2008-2014, which hold information on over forty companies making payment disclosures each year.
