KRA exempts Fusion investors from paying tax

By Lee Mwiti | July 7th 2016

Investors who buy the recently launched Fusion Capital D-REIT will not pay tax on their earnings. According to a letter Kenya Revenue Authority wrote to Fusion Capital, Fusion Capital D-REIT had been evaluated and given a tax exemption certificate.

Fusion Capital Group CEO, said: “Evidently, the exemption showcases the Government’s willingness to champion the REIT model in this market, without a doubt the exemption will drive many investors to buy into the REIT.”

The tax exemption order by the tax man is the second in the market after the Stanlib I-REIT and is in line with the Government’s policy of deepening the capital markets, and enabling financial inclusion for a wider segment of the population.
