Prof. Stephen Nkundabanyanga, Head of Accounting Department
The Department of Accounting in the Faculty of Commerce in conjunction with the Uganda Revenue Authority organized a one day students’ Tax Debate on October, 21, 2017 at the MUBS Main Library at Nakawa main Campus. Under the theme “Uganda’s Tax System: The Remedy to Uganda’s Public Financing Problem”, Prof. Stephen Nkundabanyanga, the Head of the Accounting Department welcomed the idea of MUBS students engaging in taxation discussions.
The Deputy Principal Prof. Moses Muhwezi encouraged students to have an experience of University life by engaging in as many extracurricular activities as possible. He commended the students for the impressive turn up at the tax debate. Speaking to the students, the URA Ag. Assistant Commissioner Public and Corporate Affairs, Mr. Ian Rumanyika encouraged the students to be bold and candid when discussing matters of taxation. “Feedback is food for champions. When you give us feedback, it helps us to improve service delivery as an entity”, noted Rumanyika. He also remarked that University Tax Debates are part of a grand plan hatched by URA to take Tax Education to every household across Uganda. URA commended the high quality of discussion displayed by the students as they demonstrated vast knowledge of the subject matter.
