Tax compliance has become one of the major requirement for businesses to trade in Kenya. To subscribe to tenders and business opportunities, business and their directors need to be tax complaint.
A Tax Compliance Certificate shall be issued to taxpayers who are compliant with the tax obligations as per the tax laws. These obligations are:-
Filing of tax returns for the registered tax obligations
Payment of the assessed taxes
Declaring the correct income.
Before checking for your tax compliance, you must apply for it through the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). Once you apply, a number will be assigned to you that you can use to check the status of your tax compliance.
To verify or check tax compliance, KRA provides a tool called the Tax Compliance Certificate Checker which allows you to confirm the validity of a Tax Compliance Certificate (TCC).
The tool can be used even by third parties to confirm the tax compliance of a business or individual.
