KRA To Auction Around 200 Vehicles This Week Over Default on Tax

Various goods brought into the country by local businessmen from other countries are always subjected to various taxes such as the customs duty. For some reasons however, some people face challenges when the time comes for paying these taxes.

This is the reason why the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has come to a decision to auction goods that have been lying in their warehouses due to unpaid taxes and fees. In a gazette notice issued today, members of the public have been invited to view the seized goods for them to ascertain their condition before the auction.

Among these goods will be at least 200 motor vehicles which have been lying at the Mombasa port. Those who are interested in purchasing these items have already started streaming into these warehouses to have a look at the items.

The importers have been given up to the auction day to pay the outstanding fees for these goods or risk losing them. The auction has been scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

It is believed that some of the goods that are affected could have been meant for individuals who were swindled by unscrupulous middlemen. These cons are said to pose as clearing agents who collect the fees from unsuspecting members of the public with the promise of clearing these goods but end up stealing from them.
