URA enforces compliance with the new invoicing system
Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) this week embarked on nationwide enforcement of compliance to the Electronic Fiscal Receipting and Invoicing Solution (EFRIS), introduced to check non-compliance among Value Added Tax (VAT) registered taxpayers.
The electronic system was launched in January 2021 to manage the issuance of receipts and invoices for tax purposes in real-time, thus eradicating invoice trading, fictitious purchases, and unverifiable claims due to loss of records.
URA said although the level of compliance to the new system is not bad, surveillance reports indicate that some, especially supermarkets, were selectively complying, while others had completely set the system aside.
The authorities decided to dispatch a team of enforcement officers to selected supermarkets across the country to ascertain whether these were complying with the law, for every single transaction.
