MASERU — The Lesotho Revenue Authority (LRA) is rolling out a new cashiering system at five border posts to minimise fraud and improve services to taxpayers.
In a press statement released on Friday, the LRA said it was replacing the old manual system with a new automated system that will help clamp down on fraudulent activities.
The new system will be set up at Maseru Bridge, Maputsoe Bridge, Qacha’s Nek, Caledon Bridge and Van Rooyens before it is extended to nine other border posts.
“The objective of the new cashiering system is to reduce the risk of handling cash, to minimise fraud and improve taxpayer service,” said the LRA.
The system will first go live at Maseru Bridge tomorrow.
The rest of the border posts are set to change to the new system sometime early next month.
