Kenya Revenue Authority has appealed a decision by the high court to temporarily suspend KRAs implementation of the Minimum Tax.
The taxman successfully sought for an early hearing date and the Court has agreed to
hear and determine the matter before the second instalment falls due.
The suspension by the High court in Machakos was as a result of a petition by Isinya Bar Owners Association and Kenya Association of Manufacturers.
Additionally, KRA is putting in an Appeal and an Application for Stay to the
Court of Appeal.
“Since the matter is still pending in Court, we shall not discuss the merits of the
Petitions as it would be akin to litigating outside the Court. KRA shall abide by the Ruling issued by the Court and await the outcome of the main Petition slated for hearing on 19th May 2021. ” said the authority in a press statement
Those who have already paid the tax will retain it as a credit in their iTax ledger pending the outcome of the Petitions.
