International Capacity Development Program (ICDP)

UNCATEGORISED 12/02/2020

Our International Capacity Development Program (ICDP) serves as a knowledge exchange platform for our international partners to build capacity on taxation matters while also positioning KRA as a thought leader in revenue administration.

About the Program

The program is intended to aid adoption of best practice in tax administration in various tax jurisdictions in the South through improved revenue mobilization and realization of quality tax systems in partnering countries.

It is a structured way of streamlining resources and communicating procedures and processes to be followed in the facilitation of inward visits/missions in order to ensure that KRA provides a good experience to prospective visitors when facilitating visits and that expertise and resources used during the visits are properly coordinated without disrupting operations.

The program is primarily targeted at visitors from national revenue administration agencies and is designed as a platform for knowledge and information exchange for technical assistance and capacity building purposes to promote revenue administration best practice.

When you apply to visit us:

  • All requests should be addressed to us on an official letter head of the requesting organisation and accompanied by a duly completed ICDP Application Form;

    • your visit is an addition to an existing itinerary involving visits to other government departments and will be less than one day in duration.
    • your tax administration has a shared interest with us, or there are strategic or compliance objectives that could be addressed during the visit.

Important considerations

  1. Our program is designed to cater for visits of up to three (3) days.
  2. We can host visits on all months except in January, June, July, October and December due to conflicting schedules with corporate-wide activities hence our speakers are unavailable during these months.
  3. To get the most from your visit, we recommend you limit your delegation to no more than ten (10) people and preferably no more than five if your delegation will use an interpreter. Your delegation will need to provide an interpreter if one is required.
  4. We do not fund visits by overseas tax administrations to our offices. Each administration is responsible for their own costs in relation to flights, accommodation, allowances and transfers. We will provide the presenters, venue, and light refreshments on the mission day.
  5. Unfortunately, we may not be able to accommodate all visit requests due to resourcing constraints or other business priorities.
