The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has asked warehouse operators to submit their license renewal applications by or before 31st October this year. The current licenses will expire on 31st December 2022 for the Bonded Warehouses, Transit Godown, and Manufacture Under Bond (MUB), the KRA announced in a public notice.
The license conditions are spelled out under Section 62-69; 160-166 of the East Africa Community Customs Management (EACCMA), 2004 as read together with regulations 75-81, 153-166 of EACCMA regulations 2010.
KRA has set out mandatory requirements for the operators. They will be required to submit a copy of the current CR 12 of the company and a copy of the Security Bond (CB6). Other requirements include a copy of the tax compliance certificate, a copy of the tax compliance certificate for each director and annual audited accounts for the company for the previous financial year.
Other requirements include a copy of the valid license for the year 2022 and Form C18 duly filed, signed, and stamped by both operators and Customs officers.
“Submission of the above documents does not automatically guarantee the renewal of licenses, as the applicants will still undergo further vetting by KRA,” the notice said.
