Automation in the taxation system will ensure transparency but VAT should be calculated according to the ratio of the product's value addition, speakers said at a function on Tuesday.
They also urged to introduce a provision of VAT return submission on a quarterly or half-yearly basis, especially for the SMEs.
If the revenue structure is business-friendly it will encourage return submission as well as increase tax-GDP ratio, they said, adding online VAT return submission procedures will boost the business-friendly taxation system in the country.
