Uganda Revenue Authority Commissioner General Doris Akol will be the captain of the senior management team when they take on CEOs from different companies in a charity football match on September 20th, 2019 at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo.
The commissioner General will also be in goal as URA aim at winning the first of many Tax Derbies to come as one of the activities of the tax collectors in the Taxpayers Appreciation Month.
For this year, URA and the CEOs are targeting UGX150M for Bwama Primary School a school on one of the islands at Lake Bunyonyi.
The money is meant to buy a 40 capacity sitter fibre boat to transport the pupils from the seven islands to school in the morning and back in the evening.
Part of the money raised will be used to purchase 350 life jackets, create a water system pumped from the lake for usage.
A water purification system for drinking water will also be established since the school doesn’t have access to clean drinking water.
A total of 31 companies have subscribed to the cause with many promising to come to support the cause as a way of giving back to the community.
The team for the CEOs will be led by those bodies that work with URA in collecting taxes; banking partners, partner agents (KCCA, URSB, UNRA, and NDA) together with other collectors like the telecommunication companies.
The Authorised Economic Operators (AEO) have also not been left out for their due diligence to meet their tax obligations, they contribute 75% to the taxes of the goods imported in the country.
