In order to make it easier to do business in the country, Uganda has reduced the amount of bureaucracy needed to secure licences and permits.

The establishment of the One-Stop Centre by the Uganda Investment Authority through the amendment of the Investment Act, 2019 created a single access point for information and service transactions for investors.

It also houses Government and private sector institutions that are responsible for investment facilitation.

UIA houses the physical OSC with 16 agencies and an electronic One Stop Center (eBiz) where investors can access services online.
