On 1 April, the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) will launch its ‘Digital Tax Stamps’ (DTS) programme on cement and sugar. Initially introduced at the end of 2019 on domestic and imported beer, spirits, wine, soda, mineral water and tobacco products, the programme resulted in a 270% increase in the number of active taxpayers in the country.
