Traders in Bafoussam central market go on strike!



On Monday, April 3rd, traders in the Central Market of Bafoussam, capital of the western region, observed a strike
From morning until 11 am, the main shops and stores in the market area were closed. 
According to the daily newspaper; Le Messager of Tuesday 4 April 2017, the strike was because several traders, are complaining about unjustified increase in taxes. 
So the creation of new taxes led to the closure of many shops and other stores in the main markets of the city.



The newspaper reports that in recent months, there has been tension between traders and their traditional administrative partners. “I pay 130,000 FCFA of taxes per year while traders at the same level as me pay 60,000 FCFA in Douala,” a trader shouted.
In addition to this, these traders evoke cases of scams orchestrated by tax agents, those of the Borough Community of Bafoussam 1er. At the same time, the Regional Tax Division initiated the creation of a census that resulted in the addressing of shops and shops in the city’s markets. In view of the refusal of the merchants to submit to the new census, the tax administration proceeded to seal several shops and stores.
Sources on the the administration’s side say that the traders are evading taxes. That upon research they have discovered many warehouses and shops hidden in houses of traders who declare upto a thousand times less their turnover tax.
