In Uganda, the URA is a government of the republic of Uganda established body which takes on and handles the tax related functions such as tax collections, stamp duty collections and others and is the same organization which is responsible for applications, processing and issuing of the TIN Numbers or the Tax Identification Number. In the few coming lines, you will be able to learn how to go about the whole idea of registering, processing and acquiring your New Tin Number of the new numbered formats for example 1010101010 which did replace the older TIN number series of P-XX-1XX and which according to the new e-Tax payment services which was adopted by URA recently, every tax payer is required to have the new TIN number and depending on the type of TIN you need to register for example TIN Individual or TIN NON Individual.

      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.

      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.

    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..

      Try to repeat the whole procedure and retry uploading. Sometimes its a glitch in the system. If you fail, contact a tax agent for help and or use our contact us page to send an inquiry.

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

    View Comment
    • 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.

    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.

    Hello, most of my workmates do not individual TIN and they also feel that it is not necessary for PAYE purposes. Apart from the company TIN, is an individual TIN necessary for PAYE returns. if yes, can we apply for a group of staff at once(by just filling one form)?

    With having so much content and articles do you ever run
    into any problems of plagrism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
    Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
