When: 22nd September 2022
Where: Mestil Hotel & Residences, Kampala
Time: 08:00 am – 05:00 pm
TASLAF’s annual NGO Legal and Regulatory Compliance training is a training organized by TASLAF Advocates, a specialist law firm providing tax and legal services to the NGO sector.
The training entails providing a platform to interact and share information on the understanding of the evolving legal and tax compliance requirements for NGOs operating in Uganda.
The training is a 1-day event.
Uganda is home to many non-governmental and civil society organizations engaged in various initiatives such as; creating and supporting civic awareness and engagements, promotion of human rights awareness and good governance, relief from poverty, refuge assistance, education, and general humanitarian aid among others. In the last decade or so, Uganda has experienced a worrying shrinkage of the NGO and Civil society space. This can be attributed to an increase in government interference and a cumbersome regulatory framework that inevitably drives many NGOs and Civil Society entities into noncompliance with the law. NGOs, and other Not for Profit organizations including Charities and Faith Based organizations are not immune from Taxation, Reporting and other Compliance requirements. The widely held perceptions on exemptions expose these organizations to significant risk of non compliance, penalties and fines.
Specifically, the training aims to equip participants
with knowledge, skills and attitudes to:
- adhere to basic legal and regulatory
requirements for NGOs;
- encourage increased collaboration between
regulatory bodies and NGOs/CSOs;
- understand Regulatory updates from senior
Regulatory Body staff
