Maximum License Fee for Alcohol Trade Set at Ksh1 Million

A Ksh1 million maximum licensing cost for the alcohol trade was announced on Wednesday by NACADA, the National Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse. The government agency states that all companies that import or export alcoholic beverages into Kenya are required to pay this licence charge.

The Intergovernmental Relations Technical Committee’s licensing responsibilities  have been assumed by NACADA, according to a statement. A portion of the announcement stated, “Fees payable are according to the volumes  intended to be imported or exported in the coming period of twelve months.”

A Ksh1 million licensing fee must be paid annually by traders who import or export  one million liters. Tradesmen will pay Ksh5,000,000 for volumes up to 999,999 liters; every volume  below that will incur a Ksh250,000 licencing fee.

NACADA stated that the certificate will be processed within 14 days after an application has been made.
