The Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) has called on Keroche Breweries to activate their membership to allow them to assist in their ongoing tax case.
In a statement, KAM CEO Phyllis Wakiaga said they would engage the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) on the issue with a view of seeking a mutually agreeable solution to the impasse that saves jobs and ensures all due taxes are settled.
“In our Manufacturing Manifesto 2022-2027, the Association has highlighted the impact of the regulatory burden on manufacturing businesses and proposed ways to build an effective and pro-industry national taxation structure,” the statement read.
KAM works to highlight and resolve specific challenges faced by manufacturers, and to address issues in the general business environment that hinder the growth and expansion of local businesses.
“We consistently ask our members to submit any issues regarding regulations and taxation for resolution to enable us offer timely and accurate intervention. We have a members’ helpdesk that works as a hotline to receive urgent information on members’ issues that require prompt action,” it said.
The Association has been able to advocate and work with the government on the review of tax policies and laws, resolving tax issues, and providing guidance on regulations for its members.
