Despite the Outbreak of COVID 19 and other Global Economic challenges,Uganda Revenue Authority has been able to collect over 20 billion shillings, reflecting an impressive collection in the tax regime.
This according to the interim report read to the public by the commissioner General John Musinguzi Rujoki.
According to Musinguzi,the revenue grew by 12.44% as compared to collections for the financial year 2020/2021 which reflects a nominal growth in revenue of over 2 billion shillings.
Musinguzi commits that URA will focus on consolidating and refining the gains scored with the adoption of the key technologies such as Electronic Fiscal Receipting & Invoicing Solution (EFRIS), the Digital Tracking Solution (DTS) and the Rental Management System.
He says the Cargo Tracking System and Non-Intrusive Inspection Technologies will be enhanced and fully integrated with the URA Central IT systems for effective Trade Facilitation and Transparency alongside an intensive taxpayer education.
In order to increase accessibility tax related services Musinguzi says URA will utilize mobile tax services through mobile outreach services to taxpayers, especially in areas where we do not have a physical presence.
The Tujenge Uganda Bus has done tremendously well in drumming up the efforts to grow the tax register.
The second bus will arrive next week, but the plan is to have four, one mobile tax office per region, to bring our services closer to the people.
Musinguzi says URA will continue to advocate for faster tax dispute resolution through the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) platform.
