Kenya Issues Public Notice on Automation of Voluntary Tax Disclosure Programme — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

The Kenya Revenue Authority has issued a public notice on the automation of the Voluntary Tax Disclosure Programme.


Automation of the Voluntary Tax Disclosure Programme


The Finance Act, 2020 introduced a three-year Voluntary Tax Disclosure Programme (VTDP) effective 1st January 2021 to 31st December 2023. VTDP is a programme where a person upon disclosing previously undisclosed tax liabilities to the Commissioner, is granted relief from penalties and interest on the taxes disclosed.

Kenya Revenue Authority wishes to inform the public that applications for grant of relief of penalties and interest under the VTDP can now be made online through the iTax portal. Successful applicants will receive VTDP certificates via their registered email addresses.

Taxpayers with previously undisclosed taxes are encouraged to take advantage of the relief granted under the VTDP to avoid imposition of punitive penalties and interest.

A step-by-step guide on the VTDP application process together with VTDP FAQs are available on the KRA website.
