Automated Verification of VAT Returns (Reminder)

The Kenya Revenue Authority would wish to inform the public that system improvements made to the iTax VAT return verification module following stakeholders’ feedback, have been concluded. The module cross-validates invoice details in buyers’ and sellers’ VAT returns then generates inconsistencies which affected taxpayers are required to resolve within a given period from the date of system notification.

Further, KRA wishes to advise Taxpayers that were affected by the verification of the January 2018 returns to amend their returns within 60 days from the date of this Notice. Input tax relating to inconsistencies which will remain unresolved after the stated period shall be disallowed.

Taxpayers who need assistance are encouraged to seek support through KRA nationwide taxpayer support arrangement outlined in this notice.
