KAM Participates in the Revenue Raising Process Bill 2017 Stakeholder Meeting

The private sector has noted that counties have failed to adhere to constitutional guidelines on revenue collection, resulting in an unpredictable business environment and increased cost of doing business across counties.

Specifically, KAM has noted instances of double taxation, unlawful taxation, punitive trade licensing practices, administrative inefficiencies in revenue collection and failure by the county governments to provide services commensurate to the revenue collected.

In response to this, the National Treasury constituted an Inter-Agency Working Committee to come up with policy guidelines and legislation aimed at regulating county own source revenue. The Committee has since released a draft National Policy on Enhancement of County Governments Own Source Revenue and the County Governments (Revenue Raising Process) (Draft) Bill.

KAM membership in the Western region had the opportunity to participate at a stakeholders workshop organized by KEPSA to seek views of businesses within the Nyanza/Western chapter held at Imperial hotel and well attended by the Industry.
