The government of Senegal has introduced a new tax named the ‘Special Contribution from the Telecommunications Sector (CST)’ to replace the special levy on the telecommunications sector and the contribution for economic development, writes Dakaractu. The tax is required to be paid by any operator with a public telecoms network and has been set at 5% of an operator’s pre-tax turnover, net of interconnection charges paid to other operators of public telecoms networks.
