Tax & Compliance

The right tax advice can be the difference between the survival or failure of any business venture.

Our Firm advises clients on varied tax issues, with an emphasis on corporate advice including Takeovers, Mergers & Acquisitions, Reorganizations, and financing as well as tax planning for managing directors and shareholders.

We provide specialized advice on several issues of local and international taxation with regard to resident and non-resident corporations and maintain close relationships with the four major audit firms and law firms not just in Uganda but in all the world’s major financial centres and tax havens.

We serve as trusted counsel to various clients in all aspects of tax planning to enhance the tax efficacy of their transactions, to minimise their exposure, and help them comply with the tax regime.

We have represented and advised our clients in numerous tax related litigation matters before the High Court, Arbitration Tribunals, the Tax Appeal Tribunal; including multi-million dollar tax cases involving major oil players in the economy, alongside international law firms.

One of the Firm’s Senior Partners, Prof. Edward F. Ssempebwa is widely acknowledged as one of Uganda’s leading Tax Law specialists as he helped draft much of Uganda’s basic tax legislation.
