Uber tax compliance status called into question
KRA has raised questions over Uber tax compliance status following concerns that the taxi hailing firm was carting away huge chunks of money to the mother company.
Uber International allegedly takes 25 per cent of all the money collected by Uber Kenya, with only KES 31 million going to taxes.
This includes PAYE, income tax and VAT.
According to reports, the company has 20 members of staff in Kenya and over 4,000 drivers in Nairobi and Mombasa.
