Kenya Revenue Authority has reached a new record of revenue collection to hit Sh1.669 Trillion in the 2020/21 financial year, compared to Sh1.607 Trillion collected in FY 2019/20. 

In a statement, the Authority’s Director-General Githii Mburu says that this is in spite of the challenging operating economic environment brought about by the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

“Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has defied all odds to surpass its revenue target after eight (8) years, since FY 2013/14,” the Authority said. 

The FY 2020/2021 revenue target as reflected in the 2021 Budget Policy Statement was Sh1.652 Trillion which KRA says it surpassed with a surplus of Sh16.808 Billion. 

This represents a performance rate of 101 percent and revenue growth of 3.9 percent compared to the last Financial Year. 

KRA says the performance is consistent with the prevailing economic indicators, especially the projected GDP growth of 0.6 percent in 2020.
