KRA joins in the war against illicit brews

19 August 2015, 11:08 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has come up with new guidelines targeting local ethanol traders.

The measures, jointly set out by the KRA Commissioner of Domestic Taxes, Alice Owuor and her Customs and Border Control counterpart, Julius Musyoki, are geared at supporting ongoing initiatives to curb the illicit production and consumption of spirit based alcoholic beverages.

Accordingly, KRA is now all set to enforce a set of new procedures governing access to ethanol from early next month to prevent abuse of the potable alcohol product.

As part of the measures, persons intending to acquire ethanol shall provide quarterly usage projections to KRA, with the first such projection covering the period of October to December 2015, due by September 1, 2015.

“The new guidelines, have been introduced, in the public interest and will limit purchase and importation of ethanol to traders registered under the Customs & Excise Act, as spirits excise manufacturers to guarantee product traceability,” the KRA Commissioners said.

Further, traders seeking to purchase ethanol from local producers shall always be subject to KRA’s verification. Transportation of the commodity will also be strictly controlled through electronic cargo tracking fitted vehicles.

The notice, further advises importers of ethanol to ensure the prompt declaration of the consignments a week before the consignments arrival.

All sea-based imports, shall be consigned to, and exclusively cleared at, the Container Terminal, Kilindini Port, and Mombasa.
