Summary
This study concerns eighteenth century Dutch East India Company (VOC) tax farming practices in the Southeast Asian port town of Malacca. Empirical data from VOC archives are used to determine the value of VOC's tax farming. Adopting a qualitative methodology, and drawing on perspectives from Adam Smith's tax maxims, the study focuses on determining the impact of the VOC's tax farming practices on Malacca's taxpayers, whether they were inter-continental or local intra-island traders, townspeople, or Malay farmers. The study facilitates a further understanding of the global phenomenon of tax farming practice and its demise
