On January 8, 2024, CUPIA(Customs UNI-PASS International Agency) conducted a signing ceremony for the Implementation project of the Integrated Domestic Revenue Administration System (IDRAS) with the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) in Arusha, Tanzania.

This four-year project (2024-2027), built upon the latest technology, is a testament to CUPIA’s capabilities. It marks CUPIA’s first foray into a domestic tax project and involves the simultaneous implementation of both domestic and customs systems for the country.

CUPIA’s track record includes the successful development of the initial Tanzania Customs Integrated System (TANCIS) since 2012, leveraging UNI-PASS technology. Notable achievements include reduced clearance times and increased tax revenue.

After project completion, CUPIA maintained a strong rapport with the Tanzania Revenue Authority, fostering trust through ongoing customer management and paving the way for future collaborations.

As a result, CUPIA embarked on implementation projects for the next-generation TANCIS (February 2023) and IDRAS (January 2024).

Alphayo Japani Kidata, Commissioner General of TRA, expressed optimism regarding the IDRAS project, anticipating modernization across the National Tax Administration and substantial enhancements to public services.
