Before you begin the process, you need to make sure you have the following documents with you;
- ID/Passport – just in case you are requested for it
- Photocopy of your KRA PIN – you need to make sure that your KRA PIN has been registered online. If you don’t have it already, you can follow this guideline on how to generate your KRA PIN online.
- Photocopy of your Business Registration Certificate
You also need to ensure that all self assessment returns in respect of tax obligations registered for are submitted and all outstanding tax liabilities settled.
What that means is that KRA can only issue Tax Compliance Certificate if your business makes Income Tax Returns every year. If your KRA PIN has VAT TAX obligation activate, then you are required to make returns on 20th of every month.
