A Kenyan company is a company registered in Kenya under Kenyan laws, it usually has Kenyan citizens as its directors and shareholders. However, where a Kenyan company has foreigners as its directors and shareholders, at least one director needs to be a Kenyan so as to carry out KRA PIN registration and other statutory registrations eg. NHIF, NSSF.
On shareholding, a foreigner or foreign company can be a shareholder in a Kenyan company, however certain industries require a Kenyan percentage shareholding such as the Construction Industry, Telecommunications Industry. In case of specific inquiries on this matter, kindly contact us below:
