A URA Account is mandatory for all Tax payers in Uganda since the same account is one which serves more than a single purpose when it comes to issues related to taxes as per the laws of Uganda. And unlike in the past when things were done the manual way without such a need, currently things changed after the establishment of the e-Tax feature where by unless otherwise, all tax payers are required by laws to have their accounts with URA. A Tax payer account serves functions like Motor Vehicle registration/validation/transfer, registering taxable payments, filing returns, stamp duty taxes and very many others as per ones requirements and or obligations and below are the step by step procedures for creating your account with URA.
