Kenyan Treasury seeks to limit Digital Service Tax to non-residents

The National Treasury is pushing for amendments to excuse locals from accounting for the digital service tax (DST), The Citizen reported. Under the 2021 Finance Bill, the exchequer wants the DST to apply only to non-residents/ foreigners from 01 January 2022. If adopted by Parliament, local businesses operating in the online sector will no longer be obligated to account for the tax, within just twelve months of the DST implementation.
