Uganda imposes VAT on hotels and water supplies

Sat 29th Jun 2013

The Ugandan government has recommended introducing VAT on hotel accommodation and water supplies.  The current VAT rate in Uganda is 18%.

It is anticipated that there will also be a number of basic goods, such as flour, brought into the VAT regime, although Parliament will have to debate any changes first.  At this point, the changes are only proposed by the Finance Ministry.
