URA to start charging VAT on Facebook, Netflix next month

To maximize tax collection, Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has established mechanisms to start collecting VAT from non-resident service provider companies operating in the Ugandan economy, including Facebook. 

Collection of VAT from these companies is starting effective July 1, 2022 and will focus on all electronic service providers. Others are Netflix, Amazon, Uber, and the like. John Musinguzi, URA commissioner general says that collection of this tax has been delayed by the lengthy discussions with these companies, but they agreed and have been finalized, then other levies will follow as time goes on.

Without detailing how much is expected as well as the enforcement mechanism in case of non-compliance, Musinguzi says the authority has finalized all the digital infrastructure required to effectively collect this tax.
