In a recent meeting with the Pakistani business community, URA Commissioner General John Musinguzi announced that they are working on separating the payment of car taxes from the issuance of registration number plates. This means that you will be able to pay your taxes when you import your car, but get your license plate only when you find a buyer. This will save you from having to pay extra fees for changing or renewing your plates if your car stays on the market for too long.

According to URA Commissioner for IT and Innovation, Robert Mutebi, this is possible thanks to the use of technology that automates the process of generating and issuing number plates. He also said that this will mainly benefit car importers who deal with vehicles manufactured in 2008 and 2009, which are subject to taxes at entry points under the Single Custom Territory. These vehicles have been facing delays in getting their plates, which reduces their value and attractiveness to buyers.

As a professional student, you may appreciate the importance of efficiency and transparency in tax administration. By simplifying the process of getting number plates, URA is showing its commitment to improving its services and facilitating trade. This will not only benefit car importers, but also consumers like you who want to buy a quality car at a reasonable price.
