NBS TV denies tax evasion claims

NBS TV owner Kin Kallisa

KAMPALA: The management of NBS Television has said they always meet their tax obligations in according with Ugandan laws and refuted claims that their offices were raided by the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) over tax evasion.

Mr Joseph Kigozi, the company’s chief strategy officer, said when URA officials visited their officers on February 15, the company volunteered all information as requested.

“We allowed them access and they took some information from the computers…we are yet to hear from them,” Mr Kigozi said, in response to earlier media reports that URA officials had forcibly confiscated some company computers over alleged failure to pay some taxes, the monthly NSSF contribution for its staff.

He added that the company had nothing to hide.

URA has also earlier insisted its officials’ visit to NBS television was a routine exercise and not a raid as earlier portrayed on social media.

Mr Vincent Seruma, the URA spokesperson, said the visit was a normal auditing procedure.
