Find Accountancy, Audit and Tax expertise in Kenya


There are many accountancy firms in Nairobi and Mombasa, including affiliates of the global accountancy groups. Companies are required to appoint an auditor annually in accordance with Section 159 of the Kenyan Companies Act. The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) were set out in 1998 to be the accounting standards in the country. From 1999, financial reports are mandated to be carried out in accordance with International Accounting Standards (IASs), for all enterprises, both listed and non-listed. Confirmation of the adoption of IFRS by both listed and non-listed companies was provided in the amendment of the Companies Act in 2002. However, observers have noted that there are some gaps between applicable accounting standards and actual accounting practices. In the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report (2012-13) Kenya ranked 81st in the world (out of 144 countries) for the strength of its auditing and reporting standards, with a value of 4.4 out of 7, just below the world mean of 4.6. In the 2011 World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index the country placed 92nd for resolving insolvency.
