Come next financial year, Ugandans will take on the responsibility of shouldering the biggest portion of the budget of some 32.3 trillion shillings, via revenue collection, tax, and non-tax. The government will be seeking to widen the tax base, to meet its steep 32 trillion shillings and a 14% tax to GDP target. According to Mohammed Sempijja, a tax analyst at Ernest and Young, the country’s growing debt now at 93 trillion shillings is of grave concern, and is urging the government to address the accumulation of debt.
