URA to Launch Invoicing System July 1, 2020

The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) will be implementing an electronic tax solution, the Electronic Fiscal Receipting and Invoicing Solution (EFRIS), beginning July 1, 2020. The use of this solution will apply to every person carrying out business in Uganda under business models Business to Business (B2B), Business to Government (B2G), and Business to Consumer (B2C). It will be piloted and rolled out in a phased approach as per the URA commissioners’ gazette. Under the new solution, URA will introduce Digital Tax Stamps and E-invoicing.

Here is what you need to know:

Digital Tax Stamps:

  • Digital tax stamps are tamper-proof physical paper or numerical markings with security features and codes that are applied to goods or their packaging to prevent counterfeiting.
  • Digital stamps enable manufacturers to track product movement, government to monitor compliance of manufactures, and consumers to trace the origin and authenticity of products.
  • The use of this solution shall apply to every person in the business of manufacturing and importing products gazetted for the application of these Digital Tax Stamps, which includes 6 excisable products including wines, mineral water, beers, spirits, soda, and tobacco products.

E-Invoicing:

  • EFRIS will allow users to issue electronic tax documents and check their validity safely, easily, and at no cost via the system or URA web portal.
  • Upon making a sale, transactional details will be captured in the seller’s invoicing system (ERP), and then encrypted and transmitted to URA in real-time to generate e-receipts and e-invoices.
  • Once a transaction is initiated, transaction details are transmitted to URA’s back-end system for fiscalization. Then, the system produces e-invoices or e-receipts with special features, which are sent back to your business premise for issuance to a customer in real time.

How will the new system help me as a business?

  • The solution provides proper record-keeping with full details of real time business transactions. It facilitates tax compliance and addresses loss of transaction records. It also alleviates the need for customers to store physical documents for up to five years as required by URA.
  • It simplifies the tax declaration process because of an available database to support the use of pre-populated tax returns, which helps expedite tax disputes and tax refunds process.
  • The solution also simplifies tax administration processes such as returns declaration, refunds management, and registration, and it addresses inconsistencies in tax assessments and ledger positions.
