Traders under the Kampala City Traders Association (KACITA) have appealed to Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) to come up with a uniform income tax to help with the cumbersome task of filing returns and computing income.

The proposal was raised during a consultative meeting between URA and the traders on Kiyembe lane, thumb http://decarbon.uk.com/wp-includes/simplepie/credit.php that was among others aimed at bridging the information gap about revenue administration and collection.

The traders said that since most of them had not acquired sufficient academic training , filing returns becomes very hard which can be solved if the business is valued at once and a certain income tax levied like is the case with trade licenses.

URA Commissioner General, Doris Akol welcomed the proposal and promised to do a study and see how this can be implemented if indeed it is necessary.

Akol, on the other hand called upon traders to always check with URA and confirm the taxes to be paid before travelling abroad for importation.

“Traders have been finding importation taxes to be high but this is because they don’t ask about the taxes before venturing into the business. You need to first know the tax valued on the goods that you are going to import to avoid getting surprised.”

Akol also expressed confidence that the authority will meet the tax target collections of over 15 Trillion in the next financial year.

“We have been getting tax collection proposals each year and we have been meeting them; I am very confident that even this time round with support from Ugandans we shall meet the tax collection proposal.”
