KRA iTax guide for filing P10 (PAYE) employee returns

kra itax paye p10 returns

Recently, KRA has pushed businesses to go online by discouraging manual tax returns. The new iTax system is touted to make tax compliance easier and automate a number of previously manual processes.

With Wingubox, updates will be even easier with our new itax export function. You can now easily export your P10 data in form of csv file and import it onto KRA P10 excel sheet.

Below are instructions on how to achieve this.

Exporting itax data

Currently, there are two files available for P10 export:

  • Employee Details
  • Disabled Employee Details

To export this, go to your payroll main menu and select "Reports" ->"Statutory Returns" -> "KRA Reports"
The default selection will be a P10 report for your most recent payroll month.

Employee Details

This file contains all your employees excluding those with disability exemption.

  • Locate the blue button labeled "Download itax csv"
