UBA Bank Tanzania customers can now make payments to over 600 government agencies, thanks to the lender’s integration into the Government e-Payment Gateway (GePG).
The system allows the bank’s customers to make tax and non-tax payments required by the government.
In a statement by the bank, it said; “It has always been our aspiration to support government initiatives of which efficient means of revenue collection through the unique digital expertise of the bank is a key component.
Speaking, UBA head of public sector, Mr Dominick Timothy said; “We are glad and grateful to TRA (Tanzania Revenue Authority) and the ministry of Finance for offering us this opportunity of serving the nation.”
The GePG was adopted in 2016 in a deliberate move by the government to improve revenue collections across its institutions, ministries, departments and agencies.
The initiative has effectively plugged revenue leakages that used to cause a massive loss of the government’s revenues, the statement reveals.
