Uganda is one of the countries in East Africa that has a rapidly growing economy thanks to previously conducted reforms. It is also rich in natural resources and open to investments. If you are considering this jurisdiction as a target one, your business presence may be established here in one of these forms.

Major Forms of Legal and Business Presence

If you wish to start doing business in Uganda, your business presence may be arranged here in one of these forms:
  • Private Limited Company – an entity that is flexible and easy to start. It requires at least one shareholder. The maximum number of shareholders is 100 in this case. The liability of shareholders is restricted to the invested sums only. It requires at least one director. But, this entity is not entitled to offer its shares to the public. There are no requirements for minimum paid-up share capital.
  • Public Limited Company – an entity that can offer and transfer its shares to the public. At least five shareholders and two directors are required for this entity. The liability of shareholders is limited to the amount invested only. There are no requirements for minimum paid-up capital but such capital should be adequate to the types of activities a public entity is going to conduct.
  • Branch Office – a foreign company may establish in Uganda its branch to carry out those types of transactions it is authorized to do abroad.

Registration Requirements and Steps

If you intend to form a company in Uganda, it may be required to pass the following registration steps:
  1. Defining clearly business priorities you intend to realize through the local entity.
  2. Choosing and checking a business name with its possible reservation.
  3. Collecting details about shareholders and beneficiaries as a local company should keep a respective register.
  4. Arranging a future registered business address for a company.
  5. Choosing the company's directors and a secretary.
  6. Drafting constituent documents and registration forms.
  7. Submitting the entire package of required documents to the registrar.
  8. Registration for tax and social security purposes.
  9. Opening a corporate bank account.
  10. Obtaining additional licenses and permits that may be required for certain types of regulated activities.

Legal and Regulatory Framework

The local legal framework is rather flexible for founding a business and operating further. There are no applicable nationality and capital requirements as well as restrictions for carrying out commercial transactions both locally and worldwide. The principal legal act in the area of doing business is the Companies Act. Major state authorities foreign investors may deal with are the Uganda Registration Services Bureau, the Uganda Revenue Authority, and the Capital Markets Authority.

  • Corporate income tax (CIT) rate – 30%
  • Personal income tax rate – 40%
  • Value-added tax rate – 18%
  • Withholding tax rates (for non-residents) – () dividends – 15% (ii) interest – 15% (iii) royalties – 15%
  • Capital gains tax rates – (i) corporate – subject to the basic CIT rate (ii) personal – 40%

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ. Whether it's opening bank accounts remotely or navigating the financial legalities of running an international business, these guys have got your back.

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
