Kenya VAT on foreign digital services

Kenya obliges providers and marketplaces facilitating the sale of electronic or digital services to charge and collect Value Added Tax on their sales to local consumers. Sellers have faced this requirement since 2 September 2013. The (Digital Marketplace Supply) Regulations 2020 confirmed the liabilities on electronic platforms and marketplaces with effect from March 2021.

Note: Kenyan Digital Services Tax is also payable at 1.5% since the start of 2021.
