Request to Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS)

Submitted on:July 25, 2014 - 2:45pm

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.
 

Description of the request

This Information Request to UNBS sought to access the records of deductions and remittances of Withholding Tax (WHT), which was deducted from the UNBS suppliers in the FY 2012-13, to the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) account in Bank of Uganda.

Background of the request

This Information Request was filed after receiving complaints from different individuals that the Uganda Land Fund which was basically established to pay off absentee landlords, was being misappropriated. Paying off absentee landlords would enable the current tenants of the land gain ownership and be able to develop that land. After denying us access to these records, HIM has sued government, and the case will be heard on 26th February, 2014.
