It is on a beautiful Friday morning and President William Ruto’s administration is not taking anything for granted as far as making sure that maximum taxes are achieved.
Already, banks have started sharing customer data and balances with KRA to allow Ruto’s admin to pin down tax evaders.
The regulations require financial institutions to collect and report information relating to their customer’s account details.
The individual accounts will be categorized into two; low and high-value accounts. Lower-value accounts are accounts that have an amount that does not exceed Ksh160 million (1 million US dollars) while high-value accounts exceed the said threshold.
Banks will be required to provide the following details for low-value account holders including the residence status, address, telephone numbers, email address, and beneficiaries.
Do you think this move by the government is justified?
