The High Court sitting in Machakos has today morning issued conservatory orders temporarily suspending KRA's implementation of the Minimum Tax pending the hearing and determination of the Petition.
The Petition had been filed by Isinya Bar Owners Association and Kenya Association of Manufacturers.
KRA successfully sought for an early hearing date and the Court has agreed to hear and determine the matter before the second instalment becomes due.
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. Those who have already paid the tax will retain it as a credit in their iTax ledger pending the outcome of the Petitions.
Commissioner, Legal Services and Board Coordination
