COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

AMNESTY TO EMPLOYERS AFFECTED BY COVID-19 PANDEMIC

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. What is Amnesty to Employers?

It is a measure introduced by the Fund to support businesses or Employers facing economic distress as result of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown.

The measure involves allowing Employers to reschedule their NSSF contributions for the next three months without accumulating a penalty.

  1. What is the rationale for granting the Amnesty?

It is in support of the Government of Uganda’s interventions to combat the effect of COVID-19 pandemic on businesses in the private sector.

As a Fund, we are also mindful of the need to support distressed businesses overcome the challenges of covid-19 and stay in business.

We are also aware that some Employers are grappling with inadequate cash flows, stemming from limited consumer demand and disruptions in supply value chains.

  1. Who is eligible to benefit from the Amnesty?

It applies to only Employers facing economic distress and unable to remit NSSF contributions by 15th of every month in the next three months (April – June 2020).

The most directly affected Employers majorly fall in the following sectors:

  1. Recreation, Accommodation and Food services
  2. Education
  • Trade
  1. Transport, Storage, Real Estate & Construction
  2. Human Health & Social Work
  3. Manufacturing & Mining
  • Agriculture, Forestry & Fishing
  • Importers and Exporters of perishables
  1. Does Amnesty mean a cancellation of contributions for the next 3 months?

No. It is not a cancellation/total waiver of contribution remittances.

It is a relief to allow distressed employers reschedule payment of NSSF contributions in respect of the 3 months of April, May and June 2020 without being penalised.

The contributions for the affected months will therefore remain outstanding and payable by the employers although without penalty and through a convenient payment plan.

  1. How will the Fund ascertain whether an Employer’s business has been affected by the COVID-19 or not?

In their application, the Employers will demonstrate how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their business.

Once the Fund is satisfied with the Employer’s submission, they will agree a payment schedule with the Fund, after which they will sign a Deed of Settlement.

This is because employers still have an obligation to pay Social Security contributions for their employees. 

  1. If an employer, how do I apply for the Amnesty?

An Employer who wants to benefit from the Amnesty should apply to the Fund through an e-mail amnesty@nssfug.org. Only applications through the official given e-mail will be considered.

  1. What happens after I have submitted my application?

The Compliance section will review the applications and might seek further documents in determining how the applicants were affected. Successful applicants will be granted a formal amnesty by the MD.

  1. Can I apply for Amnesty for arrears accumulated before outbreak of COVID-19?

No. The Amnesty doesn’t apply to employers with audited arrears and signed Deeds of Settlement whose payment dates fall within the Amnesty window.

Although we know that the effects of D-19 will likely affect such existing payment plans, these will be handled separately on case by case. This is because the payment plans are subject to agreements between Employers and the Fund that have specific terms, such as payment of penalties.

Companies against which the Fund had commenced legal proceedings before courts of law will follow the established procedures.
