The Trade and Foreign Policy Division held a roundtable discussion titled 'County Taxes and its Implications on Trade in Kenya.' The aim of the meeting held on 20th November 2014 was to get views from stakeholders on the issues that need to be taken into account when undertaking a study on the subject matter. The discussions by the 18 participants in attendance were quite informative and it was agreed that the study incorporate the following areas (that were not earlier addressed).

  1. Administration capacity at the counties with regards to taxes
  2. How border counties are addressing the issues importantly with regards to regional trade as new taxes would hamper this
  3. To evaluate adherence to the single business permits
  4. To assess whether county residents are getting value for money for services received

The research’s initial objectives were:

  1. To establish the types of taxes being imposed by various county governments
  2. To evaluate the effect of county taxes on intra and inter county trade
  3. To evaluate the effect of county taxes on international trade
  4. To identify county taxes that contradict the East African Community common market
