HOW TO IMPORT TAX FREE GOODS FOR A NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATION in Uganda
by KAWUKI PETER
Question: HOW CAN OUR COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATION OBTAIN A TAX FREE (EXEMPTION) ON GRANTS COMING TO UGANDA AND OTHER SOME GOODS, CLOTHES, COMPUTERS, MACHINERY, ETC.
Answer: If your Community based organization (CBO) has a certificate from the Uganda NGO board in the Office of the Prime Minister, then you should be bringing consignments with entries showing the organization as the consignee to receive tax exemption.
You should however, stay away from cheating tax by using these same goods to do business.
