Corporate Tax

Corporate Tax

You must register your company at the Kenya Revenue Authority. This can be done online at their website
The corporate tax year is based on the calendar year. However, companies may under Section 27 of the Income Tax Act and with prior approval of the Commissioner, vary their accounting year.

The rate differs between resident and non-residents (A resident company is one incorporated in Africa.) Companies listed at the Nairobi Stock Exchange are taxed at slightly lower rates than other companies.

Expenses allowable as deductibles include: legal cost expenses, incidental expenses relating to authorization and issue of shares, debentures or similar securities offered for purchase by the public and expenses incurred for the purposes of listing on any securities exchange operating in Africa (without raising additional capital.)
