Kenya Clarifies VAT On Uber Drivers

by Lorys Charalambous, Tax-News.com, Cyprus

Kenya's tax agency has clarified that taxi drivers, and not Uber, should be liable for value-added tax on taxi hailing services.

The agency said that Uber provides an application through which smartphone users contract with taxi drivers for the provision of taxi services. As such, the taxi driver is the end supplier providing those services.

The VAT rate in place on such services is 16 percent. Whether individual drivers will in fact be liable to collect VAT is unclear, as the VAT registration threshold is some KES5m (USD49,300).
