With the launch of iTax system by KRA, it has been difficult to register KRA PIN online. The reason is that KRA has made it a requirement for a Tax Agent to be involved in the registration process.

This is a major changed compared with the previous KRA ITMS system, which used to allowed individuals to register their KRA PIN without the help of a tax agent.
