The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) wants to make sure there are no loopholes when it comes to collecting taxes. The authority is planning to put in place stringent measures to ensure that no one evades paying taxes. Some of the measures have been executed by the authority, and some of them have become fruitful. According to KRA for the last month, they have managed to collect their target monthly revenue.
They have now added drones to their arsenal of tools to catch all the tax evaders. They are planning to use two drones to get the assessed value of properties and the worth of businesses. This has been necessitated by many businesses devaluing their businesses when filing taxes so as to pay less.
The authority introduced drones a month after it installed CCTVs and flow meters in alcohol manufacturing companies. These meters are meant to ensure that the companies do not lie about the amount of alcohol they sell.
