Upcoming Sessions

Course Overview

Compliance with the relevant tax regulations is one of the prerequisites for long-term organizational efficiency and success. Overall, tax compliance involves being aware of and observing the state, and international tax laws and requirements set forth by the government and other taxing authorities. All businesses must align their accounting, reporting, and tax filing processes with the different sets of laws and regulations that govern taxation.

Tax risk management shouldn’t be left to the Finance/Compliance managers alone. The heads of Finance/Compliance cannot single-handedly keep direct supervision over every tax transaction processed. The whole business needs to support them in the tax compliance and planning strategy. It is prudent for every organization to have its entire management team fully equipped with the right knowledge and tools about company tax, tax for logistics/purchasing departments, tax for the general finance function, and tax for human resources (for those responsible for employee payroll & benefits).

NeCro EDC would like to empower your team to avoid hefty tax penalties, which could lead to huge financial losses and long complex settlement procedures. This intensive two (2) day course shall focus on giving participants comprehensive information about the various taxation laws related to direct taxes, indirect taxes, and other regulatory aspects. Our team of professionals will unlock the ‘complex’ issues surrounding the Ugandan taxation and regulation system in a very clear manner, using real-life case studies and practical examples.

This two (2) day course is designed to equip delegates with key knowledge on tax compliance and the risks inherent in tax transactions for businesses
