Visit www.ura.go.ug for guide.

URA charges the sum of five different fees/duty which are summarized below,to get your vehicle on the road.


Tax type:                  % of Valuation of Vehicle by URA.

Import duty             25%

VAT                          18%

Withholding tax       6%


Environmental tax   35% ( 5 - 10 years old )
