PRESS RELEASE

21st July 2021

Guaranty Trust Bank (Uganda) Limited (GTBank, Uganda) has partnered with Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) to deploy a channel that allows for payment of taxes online.  With the deployment of this channel, Taxes can now be paid via the bank’s GTPay platform.

 

GTPay is an integrated and secured online payment and collections platform designed to enable institutions to collect payments online for goods and services rendered or to be rendered. The deployment of GTPay would provide an additional convenient channel for all tax payers to pay taxes by going online and pay their taxes. For customers of GTBank, they can make their payments by simply debiting their accounts with the bank using GTBank Internet Banking service. Customers and Non customers can make their tax payments using Visa and Mastercard cards. Alternatively, they can make tax payments using Mobile Money.  

 

To pay taxes online, intending tax payer needs to simply log on to the URA website or the GTBank Uganda website. They can thereafter follow the prompt by selecting the tax to be paid, the applicable PRN number (which can be self generated on the URA website). Upon the completion of the required steps, the tax payer would then be directed to the payment gateway where the tax payer will be required to enter his transaction details and preferred mode of payment. Upon completion of the payment process, the tax payer will receive a notification of the transaction via email.
