Tax Disputes Resolution

Our tax practice is designed and implemented in a manner to act as a deterrent to tax disputes. Our team of professionals will help you prevent tax disputes by identifying and mitigating possible risks that may result in tax disputes.

In the current world, tax disputes, tax investigations, and tax audits are almost inevitable. This is mainly influenced by constant pressure on tax authorities by their respective governments to increase revenue collection and meet set targets. In some instances, noncompliance with the tax laws may also prompt a tax audit to ascertain the accuracy of the declared transactions.

In Kenya, tax disputes may arise due to:

  • A tax assessment issued by Kenya Revenue Authority. The tax assessment can be made as a result of in-depth audits or discrepancies noted through routine checks
  • A difference of opinion in the interpretation of tax laws
  • Malicious actions by a KRA representative or representative of the firm
  • Discrepancies between corresponding VAT transactions declared by sellers and buyers
  • Classification of allowable and disallowable expenses in annual Income Tax returns among others

With our comprehensive understanding of taxation, tax procedures, and laws we handle each tax dispute according to the facts of the case at hand. We specifically help our clients in the following ways;

  • Handling all queries raised by the Tax Authorities on behalf of the client
  • Raising objections with the Commissioner against tax assessments
  • Lodging appeal with the Tax Appeals Tribunal (TAT), in instances where the objection decision was confirmed
  • Applying to settle the matter through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). We engage the tax authorities through the whole process of the ADR
  • If we fail to reach an amicable agreement at the ADR, we further pursue the case at the TAT with the aim of pushing for a favourable outcome or ruling
  •  If we are unsatisfied with the decision, we appeal to the High Court and finally to the Court of Appeal if we are dissatisfied with the ruling of the High Court
  • In the event that the ruling mandates our clients to settle the tax liability in query and are contented with the decision, we make an application for a flexible and favourable payment plan in instalments
