The Kenya Renewable Association requested the support of ACE TAF to analyse initially the proposed Tax
(Amendment) Bill 2020 and subsequently the Finance Bill 2020 which was published on 5th May 2020.
In particular, the sector was apprehensive of the impact of the proposed removal of the Value Added Tax
(VAT) exemption on equipment for the development, generation and storage of solar equipment which
would see the introduction of the tax at a rate of 14%.
This analysis examines all the proposals that would impact a business within the off-grid sector whether
the impact is positive or negative.
