Why The Tax Summit

As part of building trust among taxpayers, the KRA the Taxpayers' week has since 2015 been expanded to an annual Taxpayers Month to widen its scope and reach. One of the key Taxpayers' Month activities is the annual Tax Summit.

The Tax Summit provides a platform for Taxpayers and key stakeholders to participate in a dialogue with a view of providing solutions to some of the knotty challenges in the tax environment.

The Annual Tax Summit, 2019 will be held for a period of two days to allow for a detailed discussion and will bring together global Tax experts, academia, private sector players and senior government and KRA officials.
