WHY EVERY ACCOUNTANT NEEDS TO HAVE GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOCAL TAX
While there are ample opportunities for both experienced and entry-level accountants in Uganda, the field is constantly evolving. If you want to land a role at your top-choice company and bargain for a good pay, you’ll have to possess the most sought-after accounting skills of which outstanding knowledge of the local tax is one of those top on the list. You will agree with me that most Job adverts for accountant/ finance jobs if not all will have knowledge of Uganda Tax as one of the specifications that candidates should have.
Thanks to ICPAU that we have the Taxation and Advanced taxation papers on the CPA Course as well as CTA Course that helps us to gain this tax knowledge.
Throughout the world, accountants with their technical expertise, professional and ethical training play a key role in assisting clients and employer taxpayers regarding tax obligations. In Uganda, one of the key role for atypical accountant is ensuring the organization or client they are serving is complying with URA through timely filing of returns and payments.
The tax laws often undergo changes and can be complex especially for Uganda each budget for a new financial year comes with several amendments. Accountants need to keep themselves acquainted with these changes to ensure that companies they work for and business that consult them are compliant and are up to date.
