Top 10 Tax Complaint Small and Medium Enterprises by District
UGANDA November 16, 2020 – The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has today published a list of the Top 10 Tax Complaint Small and Medium Enterprises by District.
For the last 15 years, it has been a tradition for URA to dedicate one month in the year to appreciate compliant taxpayers, and to also reinforce the culture of voluntary compliance. This year, the appreciation season is running for a longer period from October to December 2020, under the theme ‘Celebrating the Taxpayers of Uganda’.
“For this period as we celebrate the Taxpayers of Uganda, I want to ask all Ugandans to, recognise, celebrate and support the most compliant taxpayers in their districts.”
“In a special way, we want to thank those taxpayers who have continuously fulfilled their obligations amidst the impact of the Covid19 pandemic. Because of your commitment to meet your tax obligations, we have been able to register great revenue results in the first 3 months of the new financial year. For that we commend you.” said Mr. John Musinguzi, URA Commissioner-General.
The Taxpayers’ Appreciation Season (TPAS) will run under the theme: “Celebrating the Taxpayers of Uganda.” As URA celebrates voluntary compliance, they plan to reach out to taxpayers and key stakeholders in different ways that meet the safety measures necessary in this period. Activities involved will include;
- Profiling of the top 10 most compliant taxpayers per district, the top 50 by region and the top 15 at the national level.
- Online Bomba Ya Business – free business development seminars in the month of November. These seminars will provide insights to businesses on how to survive beyond Covid19. They will feature carefully selected experts who will offer customized business solutions.
- Award ceremony of the top compliant taxpayers.
- Giving back to the community to appreciate their contribution to national development
“For this period as we celebrate the Taxpayers of Uganda, I want to ask all Ugandans to, recognise, celebrate and support the most compliant taxpayers in their districts. The public is also encouraged to look out for the free online Bomba Ya Business classes and actively participate” said Musinguzi.
