Pratical Guide for Implementation of Local Service Tax and Local Government Hotel Tax

The Republic of Uganda, Local Government Finance Commission, October 2008

26 septembre 2017

The Bill introducing new taxes (i.e. Local Service Tax and Hotel Tax) was passed by Parliament in April 2008. It was then assented to into law by H.E the President on 24 June 2008. The implementation of the collection of these taxes was to commence from 1st July 2008. However, Local Governments could not immediately implement these taxes without appropriate guidelines in place.
