      Financial Institution kazi yake halisi is to act as a bridger for savers and borrowers wa fedha (suppliers and consumers of capital in both asset and liability).Ni biashara kama kampuni yoyote nyingine iliokuwa na malengo ya kiuchumi ambapo inakopesha,inakopeshwa, inalipwa na kulipa mafau as a revolving cycle of its initial business. Ni kweli, credit facilities hutumika kama tool moja ya kupatia faida ila sio yenyewe au ndio iliyo kubwa ya kuwapatia faida. Credit facility is a product platform to lending/borrowing needs in aim to bridge/meet business investment for a sustainable growth.

      In accordance with Section 21 (3) to (6) of the Bank of Tanzania Act 2006,the central bank
      submits the Monetary Policy Statement of the Bank of Tanzania.

      The Statement reviews monetary policy implementation and macroeconomic
      developments during the previous economic year. It then outlines the monetary policy stance and
      measures that the Bank of Tanzania intends to pursue in following year.

      Some of monetary policies used by the Tanzania government through the Central bank in 2011/2012 are;
      1. Liquidity management and Interest rate Developments – this was implemented by raising the minimum reserve requirements to government deposits held by commercial banks and increased the bank rate by 442 basis points (to 12.0%) – the policy measure taken coupled with developments in commercial banks’ investment preferences in foreign assets ,strict government expenditure and good revenue performance led to shilling liquidity squeeze among the banks.

      2. Exchange rates developments – The Bank of
      Tanzania participated in the IFEM for liquidity management purposes and to
      smooth out short-term fluctuations in the exchange rate. The rapid depreciation of the
      Shilling that had been caused by, among others, increase in global demand for
      dollars, rapid expansion in the oil imports and delays in disbursement of foreign
      program assistance; was followed by appreciation in the first half of January 2012. The monetory policy measures taken included reduction of banks’ prudential
      limit on foreign currency net open position; strict enforcement of the existing
      restrictions on non-residents’ access to Tanzania shilling denominated credit
      facilities; and increased sales of foreign exchange in the IFEM.

    Hi Jinesh. Thanks for your question. The city service levy tax is 0.3% of Turnover. Not only vatable. So for a partial VaT business you pay on a total of vatable and exempt sales. I hope this will help. Visit again!
