RECOMMENDATION ON SHARING OF REVENUE FOR FINANCIAL YEAR 2018/19

Pursuant to Article 216 (1)(a) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, the Commission on Revenue Allocation is mandated to make recommendations concerning the basis for equitable sharing of revenue raised by the national government between national and county governments. Article 216 (5) requires the Commission to submit such recommendations to the Senate, National Assembly, the National Executive, County Assemblies and County Executives.

RECOMMENDATION ON SHARING OF REVENUE FOR FINANCIAL YEAR 2018-19

Accordingly, the Commission recommends that for financial year 2018/2019, Kshs. 1,371.2 billion and Kshs. 337.2 billion be allocated to national and county governments respectively, as equitable shares. The Commission further recommends that Kshs. 30.5 billion be allocated from the national government equitable share to counties as conditional grants.

The equitable share of revenue for each county government for financial year 2018/19 has been included in this document as Table 11. These county allocations are based on the second basis for revenue sharing among county governments approved by Parliament in 2016.
