- Members of the public advised to demand for use fiscalised receipts upon purchase of goods.
- A fiscalised receipt is a proof that the tax you have paid has gone directly into the Consolidated Fund.
Uganda Revenue Authority, effective 14th November 2022 to 23rd December 2022, resumed spot checks for the Electronic Fiscal Receipting and Invoicing System (EFRIS) compliance, with a primary target on supermarkets countrywide.
During these visits, URA officials will be sensitising and providing support services to ensure businesses use EFRIS and issue fiscalized receipts and invoices to their customers.
URA is carrying out this exercise to support businesses that are having challenges using the EFRIS while helping those that are not yet on EFRIS to embrace it.
The Authority urges the general public to buy goods and services from businesses that are using EFRIS and to further demand for fiscalized receipts and invoices.
A fiscalised receipt is a proof that the tax you have paid has gone directly into the Consolidated Fund.
URA encourages business owners to take advantage of this exercise and get their tax affairs in order from the comfort of their working spaces. This will also help them avoid inconveniences caused by non-compliance.
