Update on the outstanding debt owed to bulk suppliers and Settlement Incentive (s) on the outstanding debt owed to the municipality

As reported last week the municipality has rolled out a new system in line with the new regulations rolled out by National Treasury for Municipal Standard Chart of Accounts (MSCOA). Please note that this change is not unique to Gamagara municipality and all 257 municipalities were forced to comply with this regulations by 01 July 2017 otherwise this was to be regarded as financial misconduct.
