Kenya Revenue Authority’s (KRA) Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) successfully resolved 319 cases during the first half of 2022, compared to 243 issues resolved during a similar period in 2021.

This signifies a 31 percent growth in the number of cases resolved. 

KRA also says a number of taxpayers are increasingly embracing the out of court negotiations in preference to other dispute resolution mechanisms such as litigation processes.

“Through structured discussions and settlement processes at ADR, more disputes are resolved efficiently and with greater satisfaction to all parties.

The process has also enabled the tax administration to foster good relationships with taxpayers and enhance tax compliance going forward,” said the KRA legal team.

KRA said it collected Sh976.7 billion in the first half of the 2021/22 financial year.

“Patriotic taxpayers keen on facilitating national development allowed KRA to collect a surplus of Sh47.532 billion.”

The taxman says it is focused on hitting the Sh1.78 trillion target.
