The number of businesses that received recognition for being punctual and honest taxpayers has increased by a hundred in comparison to last fiscal year. In addition, the heads of three companies, namely Herberg Rose P.l.c, Arduneja Trading P.l.c, and Upper Nile Trading, had been awarded special prizes for exposing corruption.
