Government scraps controversial tax on betting

Published

Government  has scrapped a 20% tax on betting stakes and winnings, which led to the closure of one of the biggest gambling companies in the country.

The removal of the excise duty could see the return of the once vibrant sports betting industry in the country.

The fiscal measure introduced last year attracted strong opposition from betting companies as taxed both the winnings and the amount staked by the person placing the bet.

 

 

This move led to the closure of several companies, including SportPesa which the taxman said owed over $500,000 (£400,000) in tax arrears.

Sportpesa, which has operations in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, the UK and Italy successfully appealed against the new tax at a Nairobi-based tax court last November.

The tribunal ruled that the tax should be charged on winnings, and not the stakes placed.

By

Former FIFA Referee and currently FIFA Referee Instructor Dorcas Moraa and Elite FIFA Referee Caroline Wanjala have praised the current Football federation for their contribution towards elevating Kenyan Referees.

The current Federation moved to waive the Physical Endurance Tests (PET) Kshs 3000 fee charge that encouraged more referees to engage in the exercise.

The Federation has diligently conducted quarterly PET and referee training in a move aimed not just at keeping the match officials consistently up-to-date with the Laws of the Game but also at ascertaining their physical readiness to officiate both league and international matches.

“I would like to thank FKF President Nick Mwendwa and the present Federation for their sincere support to the referees in the country,”said Dorcas Moraa.

Elite FIFA Referee Caroline Wanjala continued to echo her counterpart towards the efforts the current Federation has done to improve the state of referees in the country.

“I would like to applaud the current regime for its attempts to boost the country’s performance of referees,” said Caroline Wanjala.
