URA Tightens on Lifestyle Audits for Staff with Unexplained Assets


By Immaculate Wanyenze

On 30th August 2019, the URA Board of Directors approved the Lifestyle Audit Policy to combat corruption and illegal acquisition of property. Lifestyle Audit is the process of analyzing a person’s living standards to establish if it is consistent with his or her known source(s) of income. Lifestyle audits – also known as lifestyle checks are an accountability tool that can be used to detect and prevent corruption.

These Lifestyle audits according to James Kamara, the Manager Staff Compliance break the shrewd secrecy and encourage people to work and acquire property through the right channels. If these lifestyle audits are well executed, URA will be able to recover unpaid taxes arising from the acquisition and possession of the illegally acquired assets.
