Top tax debate learners visit UP as prospective students

Posted on July 27, 2016

The top three learners of this year's Lesotho high schools debate competition visited the University of Pretoria (UP) in June 2016 to get a clear perspective on the alternative career routes on offer, as well as the facilities available at UP.

The Lesotho Revenue Authority, through its Taxpayer Education Office, annually hosts Lesotho high schools debate competitions, focused on tax issues. The aim of the competition is to cultivate the culture of comprehension in tax affairs from a tender age, ultimately leading to increased compliance in the future.

UP staff members Tanya Hill, Theresa van Oordt, Prof Theuns Steyn, Prof Gerhard Nienaber and Mpumi Monageng met with the students, to discuss all the different options regarding tax studies in UP's Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences, as well as the opportunities available to graduate students. After the information session, the visitors, accompanied by the representatives of the Lesotho Revenue Authority, enjoyed lunch at Kya Rosa.
