A conducive regulatory environment, especially the tax framework, is required to accelerate countries’ digital transformation and maximise the benefits of connectivity. This is particularly relevant as Bangladesh now faces the challenge of penetrating low-income groups to connect the unconnected.

This report presents the current state of mobile sector taxation in Bangladesh, leverages the GSMA’s experience as a global industry body on policy best practices, and provides an update on the report submitted in 2021, with more recent data and statistics on the taxation burden affecting mobile operators. The report is also intended as the GSMA’s contribution to the Bangladesh Financial Budget 2022 consultations.
