Poor accounting hollows out timber revenues

Vientiane Times, July 08, 2015. 

The Ministry of Finance has identified numerous loopholes in the accounting of timber sold by local authorities that meant the government has been missing out on much needed revenue. The government has set the target to collect revenue of 100 billion kip from the sale of its timbers for the 2014-15 fiscal year but in the past six months of this fiscal year only 13 billion kip was collected. Of particular concern was the sale of timber acquired from state stockpiles, as the revenue was not being paid back to the national budget by local authorities, the ministry has said.
