The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Monday said it has lodged an appeal against a ruling by the Tax Appeals Tribunal that a punter’s betting stake cannot be charged 20 percent tax on winnings.

The taxman is also challenging another ruling that the responsibility for payment of the tax should be on the punters and not the betting firms, shielding the latter from prosecution and aggressive pursuit of the 20 percent withholding tax.

The tribunal sitting in Nairobi had on Wednesday ruled that the 20 percent tax should be charged on the positive difference between the payout made and stakes placed in a given month.

The case looks set to influence an ongoing tax dispute between KRA and more than 20 betting firms— including SportPesa and Betin Kenya—which have been denied operating licences for the year starting July.
