PRESS STATEMENT ON THE INTRODUCTION OF THE 14% VAT ON CLEAN COOKING AND SOLAR PRODUCTS IN KENYA

Nairobi, Kenya, 17th December 2020, on 31st June 2020, The Finance Act 2020 was signed by the President of the Republic of Kenya introducing a VAT on items previously exempted by law. Among others, the Act introduced a VAT of 14% to Clean Cooking, Solar and Wind Products thus slowing down the Government’s effort of ensuring 100% of the population having access to electricity by 2022 and clean cooking solutions by 2030. Currently, 8.1 million Kenyans are still living without electricity, while 92% of the rural population relies on wood fuel for cooking which is harmful to their health1. To meet these targets the Act must be amended to reinstate VAT exemptions for clean cooking and solar products.
