Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) is the sole tax authority that can’t be avoided in Uganda, and thus, everyone is obliged to pay taxes for any prescribed service. From Imports clearance to business transactions, the authority issues IDs you can pay using Mobile money.

Well, if you just received a URA Payment Registration Number (PRN) or ID, then, opting to pay via MTN Uganda’s Mobile Money service or Airtel’s Money transfer service becomes a perfect shortcut to take away from a bank queue.

To get started, all you need is your prescribed URA Payment number or TIN for whatever service you’re clearing. Then, open your Mobile money account via your telco’s general *165# shortcode which is constant on both MTN and Airtel.
