The following supplies are to be re-categorised as being liable to the standard 18% Ugandan VAT rate instead of being exempt or nil rated:

  • hotel accommodation
  • Non-life insurance premiums
  • office computers and related software
  • certain agricultural goods
  • certain basic foods
  • plant, machinery and equipment for the public sector and agriculture
