Extension of deadline for compliance with Tax Invoice Management System (TIMS)


The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has extended the deadline for the requirement by taxpayers to comply with regulations of Tax Invoice Management System (TIMS) to 30th September 2022.

The extension of deadline is an administrative decision necessitated by taxpayers’ request for more time to acquire and activate their TIMS devices in compliance with Electronic Tax Invoice (ETI) Regulations that were gazetted on 25th September 2020, Legal Notice 189.

The overall objective of the introduction of TIMS vide VAT (Electronic Tax Invoice) Regulations, 2020 is to increase VAT compliance, minimize on VAT fraud and increase tax revenue.

VAT registered taxpayers are required to fully transition to use Electronic Tax Registers that meet the requirements outlined in the Regulations.
