THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
Budget Review Seminar – Mombasa
Date: 19 June 2018
Venue: PrideInn Hotel, Haile Selassie Rd, CBD Mombasa
In the wake of last year’s general elections and the repeat thereafter, Kenyans are eager for an economic rebound and recovery of the business and professional environment. The year 2017 saw Kenya’s economic growth decelerate to 4.9% from 2016’s 5.9%. Another landmark incident in the economic arena is the coming to effect of the interest rates capping law which resulted in a decrease in interest rates earnings and might be scrapped or amended.
It is expected that in 2018 the economy will mend, anchored on political stability and a conducive macroeconomic environment. The country has seen significant infrastructural investments and increasing household consumption that will likely support growth. The weather forecast of sufficient rains promises better performance in the agricultural sector as well as higher production of water and electricity which boost the economy.
In the 2018/19 financial year, the government plans to streamline collection of taxes with the aim of doubling income tax to Kshs. 1.26 trillion and ensuring its stability. Funding of the Big 4 Agenda, unveiled in 2017, is bound to take centre stage beside public-private partnership projects. Additional subjects for discussion include the level of government debt and prevalent corruption particularly related to public finances.
