The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and National Social Security Fund (NSSF) would like to remind the public that a unified payroll return has been developed for the joint declaration and payment of Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and NSSF deductions. This is one of the initiatives under the government Ease of Doing Business agenda in Kenya.
Following a recent public notice that communicated their intention to pilot the return with taxpayers within Large and Medium Taxpayers Offices (LTO and MTO) from May 2020, they now regret to inform the public that due to restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, this engagement has been extended. Therefore the piloting of the unified payroll return on select employers will be conducted in the month of May 2020 following which timelines for the full roll out shall be communicated at a later date
KRA and NSSF have hoever committed to accord necessary support to affected employers within the shortest timelines and ensure smooth transition in their return filing process.
