Annual Motor Vehicle Tax

The Kenyan Finance Bill 2024 has introduced a proposal for a new Motor Vehicle Tax. This tax would be levied at a rate of 2.5% of the vehicle’s value and collected at the time of issuing motor vehicle insurance coverage.

How it would work:

  • If the Bill is passed, insurance companies will be responsible for collecting the tax when issuing new or renewed car insurance policies.
  • The tax amount will be based on the declared value of the vehicle.
  • Failure to collect and remit the tax could result in penalties for insurance companies, including a 50% surcharge on top of the uncollected tax itself.

Public Reaction and Debate:

This proposal has sparked debate in Kenya. While some see it as a way to raise additional revenue for the government, others are concerned about the potential impact on car ownership and insurance costs.

  • Proponents argue that the tax will generate much-needed funds for the government.
  • Critics argue that the tax will disproportionately burden low and middle-income car owners and could lead to an increase in uninsured vehicles on the road.

The Bill is Currently Under Review:

The Finance Bill is still undergoing public participation before being voted on by Parliament. This means Kenyans have the opportunity to voice their opinions on the proposed Motor Vehicle Tax.
