During a sensitisation forum for landlords, real estate agents, and property developers from Kiambu and Murang’a counties yesterday, stakeholders were told increasing rent would increase their income and thus tax owed to KRA.
“If you increase rent, we will be happy as your income will also increase. But what we will expect from you will be higher,” said Central Regional Manager, Florence Otori.
“We are not encouraging conflicts. It would be at your own peril that you would increase rent,” she said.
Estate agents are also required to pay tax and advised to keep records to show what they have earned from every landlord.
