Annual Returns Filing Service with URSB and URA Tax Returns in Uganda

It is by law that every company required to file the Annual Returns at least once every calendar year. This is spelled out under section 134(1) of the Companies Act.

Houston Executive Consulting aid you with filing these two types of Annual Return which can be submitted online through the URSB & URA Portals. Your annual return – as the name suggests – must be filed with URSB on a yearly basis to establish the company standing.

Annual Return with URA

The one for URA is an annual return submitted by a taxpayer reporting their income tax on the profit earned or loss made during that year of income. A return every 12 months is the minimum you must adhere except for URA where you need to file a provisional return submitted by the stated due date.

With URA, return filing is a process where a registered taxpayer periodically declares his or her income to URA indicating how they have transacted during a given period and this will reveal the tax payable for that period. Filing a return is an obligation expected of all registered taxpayers.

Our tax advisory issues are handled by an Agent licensed by the Tax Agents Registration Committee (TARC) to handle tax issues on behalf of the tax payer.

Annual Return with URSB

The Company Act under Section 134 mandates every company within forty-two (42) days after the annual general meeting to file the annual returns. This is done online on the URSB website []

If a company fails to comply with this requirement, the company and every officer of the company who is in default shall be liable to a default fine as may be deemed fit by the registrar.

Save time and also save your company from being struck off the company register. You will also save your business from liability of default fine as may be deemed fit by the registrar.
