The Kenya Revenue Authority, has informed the public that it is in the process of simplifying the Stamp Duty payment process on land transactions on the Itax System and thereby expediting the payment process.
Following the changes, it will no longer be conditional to present a Capital Gains Acknowledgement Slip before stamp duty payment is processed, as had been the case before. This reform is expected to improve the ease of doing business by creating efficiency in the process and promoting investments.
TAKE NOTE that transfer of property still attracts Capital Gains Tax which is payable by the transferor on or before the 20th day of the following month in which the transfer is effected.
Be advised accordingly
