Mandatory ITAX Tax Returns Filing for Large & Medium Taxpayers

Dear all,

Please note that effective January, tax payers in Large Taxpayers Office ("LTO") and Medium Taxpayers Office ("MTO") will have to file all returns on the ITAX System. No Domestic Tax Payments from these taxpayers will be received at the Kenya Revenue Authority's ("KRA") cash offices.

This is as per KRA Public Notice dated 17/12/2013.

Thus Pay As You Earn ("PAYE"), Withholding Tax and Value Added Tax ("VAT") payments and filing from January 2014, will be done through the ITAX system.

In case require any assistance, please do contact us at any time. Our tax advisors will take you through the whole process.
