Double Taxation Agreement PDF Print

The Government of the Republic of Kenya has concluded Double Taxation Agreements (DTA’s) with a number of countries and is currently expanding her treaty network. DTA’s are important since they help in alleviating double taxation where business is conducted in different tax jurisdictions and also assist tax administrations in preventing fiscal evasion.
