Tullow payments to govt drop by Shs10b

In its unaudited transparency disclosure, Tullow indicated it spent $16.13m (Shs43.7b) on loyalties, stamp duty, Value Added Tax (VAT), Pay As You Earn and National Social Security Fund contributions in Uganda. This is a 17.5 per cent drop from the Shs59b ($23m) spent. “There has been a considerable reduction in the level of project activity, especially in field operations, following the conclusion of the exploration and appraisal phase. This explains the reduced level of tax payments,” Mr Conrad Nkutu, the head corporate affairs, at Tullow Uganda told Daily Monitor in an e-mail.
