Double taxation treaties in Uganda: Impact and policy implications


On September 18th, SEATINI-Uganda and ActionAid Uganda launched an analysis of the double taxation treaties Uganda has signed. The analysis shows that the treaties often facilitate tax avoidance instead of protecting taxes that companies and individuals should pay in Uganda.

Multinational companies extracts resources or sells goods and services in Uganda and all over Africa while contributing little as taxpayers. This deprives developing countries of money to pay for schools, hospitals and other essential services.
