Background of the request

In his Report of March 2014, the Auditor General stated that most government MDA's (Ministries, Departments and Agencies) were collecting WHT from their suppliers, but not remitting it to the URA account as is supposed to be. With this in mind, HIM made several Information Requests to MDA's seeking to access their WHT records and ascertain which of the MDA's complied with the WHT procedure and which didn't.
