Tax compliance in East Africa
EAC Partner States have well-established tax regime and national revenue authorities that are responsible for assessment, collection and accounting for all revenues that are due to the government in accordance with the national laws. Taxes applicable to business entities include Corporate Tax, Withholding Tax (WHT), Excise Tax, Value Added Tax (VAT) and capital deductions.
Managing tax and statutory compliance in today’s highly complex economic and regulatory environment is no easy task. Rapid globalization, new developments in tax laws, changes in accounting standards and increased demands from tax authorities are all increasing the burden on tax and finance departments.
