It was introduced in Kenya by Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) in October 2011, as a system for computing, assessment, collection and accounting for state revenues. It enables the taxpayer to make pin registration online, file returns, make payment booking to allow payments through the bank and also allow the taxpayer to view his/her ledgers concurrently therefore make inquiries and monitor his/her accounts on real time basis. It aims to make taxpayer adherence to KRA regulations easy and remove the cost of visiting KRA offices, enhance tax collection and present taxpayers with a platform that enhances their compliance.
