Dubai Municipality has launched an online information resource that makes it easier to do the one thing every business would rather avoid: pay tax.

The Revenue System, put together by Interactive Technologies, offers tax related information on key business areas, including retail; housing taxation; and even cinema ticketing.

“Dubai Municipality has created the Revenue System to streamline workflow processes both internally and for businesses that want to optimise their financial procedures,” said Abdul Hakim Malik, director of IT at Dubai Municipality.

The move is seen as a key step towards realising Dubai’s e-government plans. Businesses will be encouraged to submit forms online, cutting back on the type of paperwork that the e-government initiative aims to combat.

Dubai isn’t the only place with e-government plans, though. Bahrain's Civil Services Bureau (CSB) has confirmed plans to manage all the country's public sector employees through an Internet-based human resources system. Could all this mean that we’ll no longer need to stand in line for hours on end?
