Two Constructors in Trouble after Failure to Pay Tax
Two constructors Yussuf Khalif Bulle and Abdirahim Osman Yarrow have been charged before a Milimani court due to failure of paying tax accounts statements to reduce tax liability and failure to file tax returns all happening between 2014 and 2018.
The two suspects who are both directors of El-Yumo Contractors Limited denied the case and were granted Ksh100, 000 bail each. The case will be heard on December 4th.
According to a statement, the accused deliberately failed to declare taxable income by filing nil returns and failed to declare the correct amounts of taxable income to reduce value-added tax (VAT) liability for different years of income.
The two had been awarded contracts by the Judiciary and Kenya Urban Road Authority to construct Mandera Law Courts and routine maintenance of lot 5Y roads in Dandora and Kariobangi area respectively.
Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has aggressively embarked on eliminating tax evasion in the country.
