UNCCI is actively involved in offering information concerning tax to the general public and the business community in particular. There is a common perception that business people and tax authorities are enemies however at the chamber we work towards making this perception a thing of the past. Through actively engaging members of the business community and representatives of the Uganda Revenue Authority in meaningful dialogue, the chamber has successfully been able to fill the information gap that has been present in both the business community and the Uganda Revenue Authority. The tax seminars organized by the Chamber have become events that the business community looks forward to in order to help address their tax grievances.
Business development service / enterprise development training.
The business environment is a dynamic one that changes from time to
time and there is need for the business community in Uganda to remain on
track by adopting the latest and most efficient means of carrying out
their trades. This why at the chamber through vigorous research and
trainings we are able to offer enterprise development training to keep
members of the business community abreast with what is going on all over
the world so as to keep them highly efficient and competitive.
Sensitisation programmes on project planning and management.
Planning and management are essential components to any business and failure to maintain efficiency of these two aspects is most likely to result into the failure of any organization or business. At the Chamber we offer sensitization programmes on project planning and management with the aim of making businesses more productive and significantly increasing their life spans.
Assisting in network / cluster formation.
Network/ cluster formation is an important service that the chamber
provides with the aim of helping companies and businesses stand out as
stronger blocks through being arranged in cluster formations. It is
always much easier to with stand the pressures that emerge in the
business community as a group than when you are individuals therefore
network/ cluster formations are key to improving the ease with which
companies transact their business.

organizations and institutions also plays a major role in offering

with some of its strategic partners who are interested in developing
certain sectors and therefore being a member of the chamber offers such
lucrative opportunities in the form of finance and technical support.
Business registration is a tedious and very cumbersome procedure.
This has been one of the most discouraging factors to beginning
entrepreneurs simply because of the amount of time consumed and the
number of inconveniences experienced. At the chamber we endeavour to
take members through the entire process and guide them through the least
tedious ways of registering companies without undergoing a lot of
stress and inconveniences.
