Following an RFP process, the agency selected RSI to implement an integrated tax system to modernize the agency’s technology, architecture, and business processes. The project, entitled Revenue Administration Modernization Project (RAMP), began in 2015.
The full project entailed a 3-year implementation and services integration for the new solution including detailed design, configuration, integration with existing systems, conversion, testing, and implementation support services.
Tax types included in the Province’s administration which were migrated to the new ITS included:
- Provincial Sales Tax
- Liquor Consumption Tax
- Fuel Tax
- Tobacco Tax
- Corporation Capital Taxes
- Insurance Premiums Tax
With the new system, MoF has been able to introduce new citizen programs such as the Red Tape Reduction which has benefited small- and medium-sized businesses by raising threshold amounts for filing returns for several tax types.
Another new program that the MoF was able to introduce was an automatic filing extension for tax clients that file and pay their tax electronically. Prior to the new system, these tax client offerings were not possible.
The new system implementation began in early 2017 and went live in December 2018. RSI’s flagship product Revenue Premier, a state of the art, COTS solution will not only fulfill the MoF’s immediate requirements, but also provide a flexible.
