The County Government of Uasin Gishu today launched application of Single Business Permits for the year 2021.
Speaking during the event at the County Headquarters, ICT, Trade and Industrialization CECM Dr. Emily Kogos called on the traders and business community to apply for their permits as early as now.
“We have kicked off the process for our clients to make necessary arrangements as soon as possible” said Kogos
Normally the issuance of the permits runs to 31st March of every year and if a client is found not to have acquired one, he or she will be culpable and will be prosecuted.
According to Finance and Economic Planning CECM CPA Julius Rutto, the revenue system is self service and the process takes less than 5minutes.
“Avoid last minute rush which has been a norm for you, there will be no extension of days from the time the stipulated period lapses” added the county head of treasury.
The system has been automated to serve clients from across the wards at their door steps, without traveling to the county headquarters.
Earlier in the day the Department of ICT and E-government trained licensing officers on issuance of permits, registration of businesses, transfer and change of business, integrity among other aspects.
