In Kenya, workers in formal employment are taxed through a deduction named Pay As You Earn (PAYE).
The formula for determining PAYE is based on Kenyan Tax Laws (Understanding Kenyan PAYE calculation).
As an employee, your employer will deduct this tax and remit it to KRA on your behalf through KRA Online Portal. A special Microsoft Excel File dabbed iTax P10 file is used to compile all employee payroll data into a single uploadeable zip file. See our iTax P10 how-to guide on how to fill this in.
PAYE returns deadline for a given month is the 9th day of the following month. Late payments attract a penalty fine of KES 10,000 (USD 100) charged to the employer.
Similarly, NSSF (National Social Security Fund) and NHIF (National Hospital Insurance Fund) are mandatory deductions collected and remitted to relevant statutory bodies on behalf of the employee.
NB: Effective January 2022, insurance relief is now applicable to NHIF after gazettement of the The Finance Act No.8 of 2021
