KIFWA withdraws cases against taxman

The Kenya International Freight and Warehouse Association is the sole representative of all clearing, forwarding and warehousing companies in Kenya/FILE

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 31 – The Kenya International Freight and Warehouse Association has withdrawn four cases they had filed against the Kenya Revenue Authority in a move meant to mend their frosty relationship with the Tax Collector.

Through its Chairman William Ojonyo the company will solve issues out of courts so as to create a good working relationship with the tax man.

“We can never run away from KRA. We cannot run away from customs. The only way forward is dialogue,” said Ojonyo.

The Kenya International Freight and Warehouse Association is the sole representative of all clearing, forwarding and warehousing companies in Kenya which was borne out of need to have one national body which is cohesive to represent interests of its members.

Jonyo said that the company will be making major reforms to transform the image of clearing and forwarding agents.

“We need to reform ourselves. We need to reform how we do things and how we operate to make us more vibrant and competitive in the changing times, “He said.

KIFWA is proposing training for all directors and company owners as pre-condition for renewing licenses.
