ORIENT Bank has become the first bank to incorporate the URA e-tax payment system into its services. â€œThis new payment mode which was unveiled by URA early this year, is easy, instant secure and hassle free way to pay domestic taxes,â€ Orient said in a statement.
â€œURA customers paying VAT, PAYE, Local Excise Duty, Gaming and Pool Betting can pay at any of our branches countrywide.â€
To access these services a customer will be required to log onto www.ura.go.ug and choose a preferred mode of payment that is cash, cheque or funds transfer and choose to pay through Orient Bank.
â€œThey will be issued with a payment registration number which they will quote when they go to any of our branches to effect payment.â€
The service is open to all taxpayers irrespective of whether they have accounts with the bank or not.
