Expanding fiscal space to provide more money for development
SEED aims to support Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in generating greater public investment which in turn depends on checking the unabated growth in government’s expenditure and optimizing revenue mobilization. SEED is supporting GoKP in multiple areas including design and roll out of meaningful pensions reforms that rationalize the GoKP’s current and future liabilities, tapping into the potential STS tax base and conducting a communications and advocacy campaign, technical support on better enforcement of MVT collection through modernization of systems, establishing a Tax Policy Nudge Unit that will use behavioral science insights to increase compliance by raising tax morale and willingness-to-pay among taxpayers, and design of legal and institutional reforms and policies required to establish a tangible link between local revenue and expenditure through a pilot project on benefit taxation with a possible RCT.
