Taxwise Africa Consulting is an independent tax advisory established in 2012 with the objective of providing bespoke tax solutions across the East African Region. Our team has a combine tax experience of over 30 years.
Taxwise Africa moves away from the restrictive environments of accounting/audit/legal firms to provide client-focused tax services in an environment conducive for innovation of bespoke solutions for our clients. We are therefore not an accounting/legal/audit firm. We are purely a tax advisory firm. This ensures there are no conflicts of interest, and we will approach any tax issue from a tax efficiency perspective as opposed to just tax compliance.
Our model requires staff are trained on all tax technical and organizational structure matters from leading institutions, with the goal being that any Taxwise staff will be able to deal with any tax matters across the region.
Deep engagement and constant communication are the best ways to conduct business as they establish and strengthen relationships while enabling more fruitful discussions. Our specialists have established a reputation as dependable providers of high quality, value-adding, and practical tax assistance.
Notable engagements include in the energy sector where Taxwise Africa has provided advisory work for Kengen and KPLC on the tax implication of major projects such as Olkaria 1, Olkaria 2 and Olkaria 3.Also we have provided similar services to the Mitsubishi group on the tax implications of the Mombasa Diesel Power Project and Kipevu Diesel Plants. Other services to players in the sector include tax risk and opportunity assessment for KPLC & Kengen and representation & resolution of tax disputes with the Kenya Revenue Authority on behalf of major clients.
Our model differs in that we do not seek to service a large portfolio of clients, but a sizeable one whom we can give round the clock attention. We seek to stay very close to our clients thus understanding their businesses in greater detail and keep abreast of developments to ensure past, present, and future tax risks and opportunities are identified early enough and dealt with pro-actively.
