    Hello and great “how to”

    Do I have to go in person to drop off my copy of forms? can I send a boda instead and have them being my TIN information back?

    Once I have a TIN i will be able to purchase a car or motorcycle and put it in my name s that correct? are there any other issues that come with getting a TIN? I am an expat that wants to buy a motorcycle while Im here but was told It requires a TIN.

    Thank You

      Unfortunately, it is not possible to send a Boda with your application. You need to be there. I have sent you more details in your inbox so please check and ask if you need additional help.

  6. i already have aTIN number, got my original certificate and lost it. however i would like to print for myself another copy of the certificate using my computer and printer without having to go back to URA. Is it possible and how do i do it and how do it?

    also if i have my tin number written somewhere how do i verify if its correct and belongs to mi without having to go back to URA?

    • KWS Adams KWS Adams says:

      For the certificate, you need to go to URA branch and request for another copy.

      And to verify the TIN, visit URA website and try to create an account. You will be prompted with a success or failure which yiu will use to tell your TIN legality.

  7. Mathias says:

    I am completing the forms but I DON’T have a referee. How can I be assisted?

    • KWS Adams KWS Adams says:

      A referee is mandatory. If you don’t have one who has an active TIN number already, then you can will need a TAX agent to help you. Use our contact us page and send an inquiry about that.

  8. How long does one take to recieve an individual TIN number after registration???

    • KWS Adams KWS Adams says:

      Once your papers have been approved which may take a day or even a week, your TIN is approved instantly. You can call the URA Toll free number for details or send us an email using our contact us page.

  9. nashimolo andrew says:

    Am Nashimolo andrew
    i submitted my details to URA MBALE but its 3months now and i have never got a TIN
    Every time i go to the office
    nobody is concerned

    can i get my TIN via the e mail i submitted?

    • KWS Adams KWS Adams says:

      While all new processed TIN owners are notified through email of their TIN, there is no way you can apply for it through email. Since you submitted your forms already, you need to remind them as they are the ones to process them. Alternatively, you can try to re-apply using the instructions on the page..

  13. Nandutu Irene says:

    I have a staff of 17 teachers who are applying for TIN. Can they all use one person as a referee?

    • KWS Adams KWS Adams says:

      I guess yes, all your employees can use one referee since the different applications are handled by different personnel. However, it will be a good idea if you call up URA and find out. They got a toll free number.

  14. Andruga Cosmas says:

    Hi. I have been trying to submit TIN application forms online but there is no response either on the URA portal or in my email whether the process is successful or not. If you are to reply to my email, how long does it take?

  15. zahara says:

    hello,

    what is the difference between non individual and individual?
    thank you.

    • KWS Adams KWS Adams says:

      Non individual can be for a business, company or anything which is not for personal use. A personal one can be for a single individual. Thanks for the comment Zahara.

  20. Hellen says:

    Help us please the teachers in Mayuge district. We have been asked by our headteachers to pay ush. 15,000 to register for TIN numbers. Is n’t this a way of subotaging the registration processes. Please help. Hellen

    • KWS Adams KWS Adams says:

      I have no clue on that. May be the fee is for helping in transport and processing. If you cant do that, then process your own TIN by following the procedures above and hand them to the admin of the school. But its time consuming and involves traveling to URA offices and internet usage.

  21. i would request to up date my old Tin no. p99/3047/2485/T

  23. How can I be helped to get a new Tin number plse.
