Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) provides several services to Kenyans, including pin registration, eTIMS registration, filing of tax returns, and uploading of the App.

For business income, you need a set of financial statements prepared by an auditor for corporate companies and partnerships, and individuals. It is also recommended that the accounts are prepared by a certified or qualified accountant.

The process of filing tax returns is done online. There is a simplified way of doing it through a kabambe or smart mobile phone. You simply dial *572# and follow up the steps until completion.

Kenya Revenue Authority remains committed to supporting Kenya’s growth and growing the MSME sector through mobilizing revenue to fund crucial expenditures for the citizens of Kenya. The tax collected goes a long way in ensuring expenses to cater for the safety of citizens, infrastructure development, free education, rural electrification, and agricultural subsidies among others are funded to improve our livelihoods.

KRA has deployed initiatives to ease the burden of tax compliance to make it easier for the MSMEs to contribute to this noble cause.

A simplified tax regime dubbed turnover tax at the rate of 1%  that can be paid from the comfort of where you are by using the USSD code *572# accessible using a Kabambe, Mservice app, and iTax portal to ensure that time is saved to attend to your business.

KRA also offers free services and tax education sessions at the grass root level using Mobile Tax Unit across the country to spread the tax gospel and support Kenyans to comply with their taxes.
