URA says Gaming International’s other branches may too be closed on Monday if the company does act within the specified grace period.

This follows an earlier warning by the tax body in which they listed 179 top tax defaulters in what is known as the “SHAME LIST” in a move to redeem unpaid taxes as the Financial Year closes.

According to URA’s Manager Debt Collection, Abudu Salaam Waiswa, these are taxpayers whose arrears have accumulated overtime but have remained defiant to settling their tax liability despite several reminders to pay up.

They were granted up to seven days from the date of notice (Thursday last week) to clear their outstanding debts or face enforcement actions including but not limited to closure of their business premises, seizure of their property as well as personal property or face prosecution for not paying taxes.

The list also included individuals who guaranteed their companies to pay their liabilities, but failed to honour their obligations as agreed in the Memoranda of Understanding which they signed with URA.
