For example, when they make Iraq in 120 of 170 countries, they are based on clear and explicit figures.
    "The Iraqi government should take these reports into consideration," Antoine said. "We should not reject or take a fanatic stance on these remarks. He explained: who criticizes me on a certain point to see what the problem and go to address it and overcome the obstacles. He pointed out that there is a committee in the Prime Minister's Office, led by one of the advisers, whose task is to overcome these obstacles and follow the international reports on all subjects. Unfortunately, the tax system so far in Iraq is unstable and has no proper structure in the accounting process. The tax base in Iraq is still unclear, especially in the direct tax imposed on individuals and companies operating in Iraq, Antoine said. Stressing: The Iraqi government has put an amount of taxes in the budget nearly ten trillion dinars to supplement the deficit, and part of this amount is obtained from investors and companies operating in Iraq, although this was not calculated in the past years, because oil was covering expenses. But after the oil price fell in the last two years, the tax system has been put in place, but there is a problem. We are hard to get the 10 trillion dinars to evade many taxpayers and their non-compliance.
    He stressed the economic expert: The General Authority for tax collection has a significant failure in its work and need to e-government, including the meaning of "electronic deal" to obtain taxes and customs duties and tariffs.

Stressing that this matter must have an impact on the work of investors in Iraq. Antoine said: that there are a number of conferences were held in and out of the country, including a week ago in London and Paris and is working to attract foreign investors to work in Iraq. However, when we go to these conferences, we must explain to the foreign investor the tax system in Iraq in a precise and clear manner, so as not to collide when Iraq comes with great obstacles other than what we are talking about. "There should also be a legal environment attractive to the investor to pay the tax transparently and without any extortion or harassment even.
    The economic expert: The investor puts in his account the percentage of profits when he invests, because these are the global standards and the environment attractive to investment. The investor is assured to work in the country in a smooth and orderly manner. Investment in all countries of the world flows easily and with high flexibility, because of a good, safe and easy environment. Stressing: The investor when he finds obstacles will be coming to this country, which calls on us to emphasize the importance of lifting obstacles to investors and familiarize them with the reality of the current environment of this country.
    Director of the Tax Department of Deloitte Jane Stokes also confirmed in a press statement that the Iraqi authorities did not fully implement the system of self-assessment of taxes, and the process is still affected by the review of the Commission requests for tax return provided. "However, there is a perception The Commission has the impression that taxpayers are not doing enough to participate effectively in the discussion with the IRS. "
    "In spite of the complexities in this area, it still provides investment opportunities for foreign companies, but in the light of the approach adopted by the General Authority for Taxation, it is important for my motivation," said Alex Lo, partner in charge of international tax services at Deloitte Middle East. Both new and advanced business activities in Iraq, to ​​take proactive steps from the beginning, to ensure compliance with the obligations of tax filing in Iraq.
    Deloitte's report provides significant tax considerations for doing business in Iraq and highlights the most important factors influencing their operations, such as regulatory, economic, and market developments. The guide also addresses the sectors that attract investment and rich opportunities and considerations to enter the market, in addition to the procedures necessary to establish companies in Iraq.
