In aid of legislation, recommendations are made to urge the government to do better.

Chairman and CEO of Asian Consulting Group, Mon Abrea, has made it clear that to fully be able to make taxes easier for everyone, the government must be proactive in reviewing and revising the passed legislation to further cater it to the needs of taxpayers and to cease corrupt activities in the government.
