URA On The Hunt For Supermarkets Not Using The EFRIS

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has resumed checking for violators of the Electronic Fiscal Receipting and Invoicing System (EFRIS) compliance.

The body has mainly set the target on supermarkets in the whole country.

Ibrahim Bbossa, the assistant commissioner public and corporate affairs at URA, said officials will be providing support services.

This will help ensure that EFRIS is used by businesses as they issue fiscalized receipts and invoices to their customers.

“URA is carrying out this exercise to support businesses that are having challenges using the EFRIS while helping those that are not yet on EFRIS to embrace it. We urge the general public to buy goods and services from businesses that are using EFRIS. And to further demand for fiscalized receipts and invoice,” he said in a statement.

He further said that a fiscalized receipt shows proof that the tax one pays goes directly into the consolidated fund.

He called upon business owners to take up this exercise and get their tax affairs in order without moving away from their businesses. This will also help them avoid inconveniences caused by non-compliance.

The EFRIS came into existence in 2020 from URA to make some electronic taxing solutions.

It allows one to safely, easily and at no cost issue electronic tax documents and check their validity, by logging onto the system or the URA web portal.
