Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) filing more taxes online.
In the newspapers this week is a fairly prominent ad promoting the fact that a good number of taxes can now be filed online with the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). Last year in July 2009 I had written an article about the announcement from KRA that they would launching their Integrated Tax Management System (ITMS) online to let a few taxes be filed online. It looks like since then the a whole gamut of taxes can now be done online as follows:
- Monthly VAT Returns.
- Withholding Tax Returns.
- Individual Income Tax Returns for Residents.
- Individual Income Tax Returns for Non-Residents.
- Withholding Income Tax Returns.
- Land Rent Returns.
- Sugar Development Levy Returns.
- Turnover Tax Returns.
- Standards Returns.
- Returns for VAT on Imported Services.
Any idea who build the system ?
@mike I understand it was done in-house.
I had the impression that it was more or less a system they adopted from some other country… but ok let say they build it themself then surely someone in the local tech community must know who _actually_ build it 😉
Anyone know if the system has an API or some other way of official integration ?
It has no clear guidelines,it leaves the client struggling. It should be elaborate,clear and simple!

Congratulation to kra but please employ competent people with good knowledge in current tax laws to train individuals on online filling of returns
Why is it that filing returns online has become a real task. Please work on this and simplify it out. I believe it will bring convenience and too avoid delayed returns submission.

I’d like clarification on how to pay tax on annual maintenace fee for a software that i purchsed . the invoice indicates VAT to be charged. I am not a registered vat agent so is the supplier responsible for remitting this? Does withholding tax apply in this case too?
