The publication Revenue Statistics in Africa is jointly undertaken by the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration and the OECD Development Centre, the African Union Commission (AUC) and the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF). It compiles comparable tax revenue and non-tax revenue statistics for 21 countries in Africa: Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cabo Verde, Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Eswatini, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Niger, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Togo, Tunisia and Uganda. The model is the OECD Revenue Statistics database which is a fundamental reference, backed by a well-established methodology, for OECD member countries. Extending the OECD methodology to African countries enables comparisons about tax levels and tax structures on a consistent basis, both among African economies and with OECD, Latin American, Caribbean and Asian economies.

Non-tax revenue trends, 1990-2016

Governments generate revenues through mechanisms that do not meet the definition of taxes used in this report. These are known as non-tax revenues and can be a very important source of financing; two countries may generate similar levels of taxes but their public spending might differ significantly due to the different levels of non-tax revenues they collect. This is particularly the case among African countries, many of which obtain a substantial portion of their public finances from resource rents or grants.
