What Is Turnover Tax Form?

What Is Turnover Tax Form

The Turnover Tax Form is an Excel Sheet or Form that is used to compute and validate the amount of Turnover Tax for a given month that a business is supposed to pay Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). It is also referred to as the Income Tax Turnover Tax Returns Form. Just like any other form on the iTax Portal, the taxpayer is supposed to fill in the details of gross sales in the KRA Turnover Tax Returns Form so as to calculate the Turnover Tax that is due to KRA for that given month. 

Since the beginning of January this year 2020, businesses whose gross sales for a period of an year is not expected to exceed the Kshs. 5,000,000.00 are supposed to Register for Turnover Tax by amending the source of Income on their iTax profile to Business Income, a process referred to as Business Income Amendment which you can apply and get at Cyber.co.ke Portal today.

Once the business has been registered for the Turnover Tax Obligation on iTax Portal, the business is supposed to file monthly Turnover Tax Returns on KRA iTax Portal. For that business to be able to file the Turnover Tax Returns, the taxpayer has to log in to their KRA Web Portal Account and download the Turnover Tax Form, fill the Turnover Tax Returns Form, validate the KRA Turnover Tax Form and upload the KRA Income Tax Turnover Tax Form on iTax Portal.

Now that we have looked at what we mean by the term Turnover Tax Form, we need to look at the key features of the KRA Turnover Tax Form. This is basically the parts or sections that make up the Turnover Tax Returns Form.

Features Of The Turnover Tax Form

Just as I have mentioned above, the Turnover Tax Form is basically an excel sheet or workbook that a taxpayer who owns and runs a business that qualifies for the Turnover Tax Obligation, needs to fill the gross sales details so as to compute the amount of Turnover Tax that is due to be paid to Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) on a monthly basis.

Just like any other Returns Form on iTax, the Turnover Tax Form is an excel workbook that is comprised of different sections that I am going to highlight below in full details so as to let you as a taxpayer who owns a business know about this KRA Turnover Tax Form. Basically the Turnover Tax Form is comprised of four key sections i.e. Section A (Return Information), Section B (Details of Local Purchases), Section C (Details of Turnover Tax Paid) and Section D (Calculation of Tax Due).

  • Section A (Return Information)

The first section of the Turnover Tax Returns Form is the Return Information Sections. Basically in this section, the taxpayer is supposed to write his or her Personal Identification Number (KRA PIN), Type of Return (Original or Amended), Return Period From and the Return Period To. Once those fields on the KRA Income Tax Turnover Tax Returns Form, the next button to load the next section.

  • Section B (Details of Local Purchases)

details of local purchases on the turnover tax form

The next section of the Turnover Tax Returns Form is the Details of Local Purchases. In this section, if your business made any local purchases, you need to fill in all those details in this section. This includes: KRA PIN of Supplier, Name of Supplier, Invoice Date, Invoice Number, Description of Goods/Services and Amount (Kshs.). If you made those local purchases during the month, then you need to fill this section. If not just skip this section by clicking on the Next button.

  • Section C (Details of Turnover Tax Paid)

The next section is the Details of Turnover Tax paid. Basically in this section, you will have to capture either the Advance Payment or Self Assessment Tax if you have. In both sections you will need to fill in the Payment Registration Number (PRN), Date of Deposit, Amount of Turnover Tax Paid (Kshs.). Once you have filled the above sections click on the Next button.

  • Section D (Calculation of Tax Due)

calculation of tax due section of the turnover tax form

This is definitely the most important section of the KRA Turnover Tax Returns Form. This is where a taxpayer will do the Turnover Tax calculation for the business for a given month. In this section, you only fill the Turnover for the Period (the gross sales for the month). If you have paid Presumptive Tax for the business, you can enter the amount paid on the Presumptive Tax Credit section. This will be deducted from the turnover tax to get the Net Tax payable to Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). Once you have filled in the section, click on the Validate button and upload the form in your iTax account.

Importance Of The Turnover Tax Form

From the above, you might have already noted that the KRA Turnover Tax Returns Form plays an important role in helping the taxpayer who owns and runs a business in Kenya to calculate the amount of Turnover Tax that is due to be paid to Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). I don’t think if there is any other important use of the Income Tax Turnover Tax Returns Form other than the KRA Turnover Tax Returns Filing.

So, the KRA Turnover Tax Form is simply used to compute the TOT that the business has to pay to KRA for a given month. Since Turnover Tax is paid monthly, then the taxpayer needs to always have the latest version of the KRA Turnover Tax Returns Form on iTax Portal. Once downloaded, then the taxpayer can use the TOT Form to calculate the tax dues from the gross monthly sale of the business for a given month.

Now that we have addressed the above, we need to shift gears and look at the key requirements that a taxpayer needs to have so as to be able to download the Turnover Tax Form from the KRA iTax Portal. The requirements that are needed are basically two i.e. KRA PIN Number and KRA iTax Password. This is as illustrated and highlighted below.
