6 February 2024 10:00AM SAST Insiders Stage, Cape Town International Conference Centre

  • Workshop

  • Ending 12:00PM SAST

This AMLA platform is a tool that African governments and legislative drafters may utilise in developing legislation, or which may serve as an educational device for parliamentarians, mining sector regulatory bodies, and civil society to better understand some of the possible legal solutions or systems for regulating the mining sector. The AMLA Guiding Template represents an enhanced starting point for its users by providing a clear and practical foundation on which they can thoroughly consider topical issues supported by sample drafting language as they develop, modify, or simply assess mining legislative frameworks that fit each country's unique context. The various toolkits developed to complement the AMLA platform and the Guiding Template provide enhanced analyses, references, and practical guidance on addressing specific mining legal issues.

This session will include a presentation of AMLA’s activities over the years, a presentation on previous toolkits and introduction of the Mineral Taxation Toolkit, and an expert panel session, featuing NRGI's Thomas Scurfield, addressing:
•    impacts of mining fiscal policy approaches in Africa 
•    tax avoidance and the OECD BEPS initiative 
•    incentives regimes 
•    tax administration
•    proposals for reform to maximize benefits
