Abstract: This paper analyses the tax burden borne by a large number of Malian companies (3 474) representing the totality of the formal sector of this country. By exploiting individual firm information collected from financial statements and balance sheets, we highlight determinants of effective tax rates such as firm’s size, industry, location or other corporate attributes. Our study is in line with the surge for more transparency in national fiscal practices.
