Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has effective 1st of July 2012 rolled out a new way of registering, transferring and deregistering vehicles from Uganda to other countries. The same sytem helps car owners with getting duplicate number plates in case the first one got lost.
This registration applies to all vehicles that were registered earlier and those that are being imported into the country. Cars that are already in use will have to be registered from the URA website(ura.go.ug)by clicking how to validate your existing vehicle or registering a new vehicle with the help of a 10 digit TIN number.
A form will appear in which all particulars of the vehicle have to be entered, submitted to which a receipt will be issued. Once the details submitted match with those in the URA database, the old log book will then be withdrawn and replaced with a new one. It is even easier for imported cars because a clearing agent will be the one to do that.
Registering of cars is free and for the new ones, import and registration dues will apply. Motorist now have one year from the above date to effect the change over from the old log-book to the new one.
The Acting Commissioner Domestic Taxes Henry Saka appealed to motorists to comply within the one year to avoid impounding of their vehicles.
