Provision of additional time to comply with the Tax Invoice Management System


Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) appreciates the VAT registered taxpayers who have transitioned to the Tax Invoice Management System (TIMS) by completing the process of configuration and integration of the new Electronic Tax Registers (ETR) with their invoicing systems.

Having noted that a number of taxpayers are still in the process of acquiring and integrating the ETR devices with their invoicing systems, KRA further advises that an administrative decision has been taken to provide additional time until 30th November 2022, to allow the taxpayers complete this process.

The overall objective of the introduction of TIMS is to increase VAT compliance, minimize on VAT fraud and increase tax revenue. All VAT registered taxpayers are required to have in place the new ETRs to enable them generate and electronically transmit their validated tax invoices to KRA in compliance with the VAT (Electronic Tax Invoice) Regulations, 2020.

A list of approved suppliers of the new ETRs can be accessed from the KRA Website:
