The Tax Act 2023 has been written in simple language and all sources of income have been consolidated chapter-wise. The simple formula has made calculation easier for everyone. Efforts have been made to reduce the arbitrary power of the officers and reduce the cost of doing business in Bangladesh. The conflict with the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) has also been adequately addressed. Most of the returns will be filed on universal self-assessment. The Act has aligned with international best practices. The refund process has been made simpler.

The Economic Zone is relatively a new concept in Bangladesh.

Lands have been allocated to investors and factories are being setup for production in several of the economic zones, among which the flagship project is the Mirsarai economic zone. Some local and foreign companies have already invested in the Mirsarai economic zone and currently, BEZA is allocating lands to companies.
