MTN has become aware of an article circulating on social media authored by Mulengera news dated June 13, 2022 in which it claimed among other misleading allegations that “the Tax Appeals Tribunal, in their 11 page judgement proclaimed last Friday….that MTN should promptly pay the UGX 24BN as assessed by URA”
MTN informs the public that this information is incorrect and deliberately misleading. MTN resolved all tax disputes between itself and the Uganda Revenue Authority in the Tax Appeals Tribunal following a joint reconciliation exercise in December 2020. MTN issued a statement regarding the cases resolved in the Tax Appeals Tribunal in December 2020, details of which are available at https://www.mtn.co.ug/tag/mtn-v-ura-tat-application/
The Tax Appeals Tribunal has not issued any judgement against MTN Uganda since 2020 as alleged by Mulengera News.
MTN is a responsible and ethical corporate citizen committed to meeting all its lawful obligations including all taxes that are properly assessed and are due and owing.
