The Bank of Ghana has said it can not provide full assurance to depositors whose monies have been locked up in 23 Savings and Loans companies which bit the dust Friday.

The 23 institutions were within the savings and loans as well as the finance house categories of the financial sector.

The Bank of Ghana has reached the conclusion that GN is now insolvent under section 123 (4) of the Banks and SDIs Act, 2016 (Act 930), being in breach of its key prudential regulatory requirements.

The Bank of Ghana on Friday, May 31, 2019 revoked the licenses of some 347 microfinance institutions in the country. The reclassification was to among other things enable the institution to downsize its operations and also inject additional capital to resolve the acute liquidity challenges it was confronted with.

The Bank of Ghana has signalled the latest closure brings an end of a banking sector clean-up.



The statement from the BoG said ”the Bank of Ghana has with effect from today, completed the clean-up of the banking, specialized deposit-taking (SDI), and non-bank financial institutions (NBFI) sectors which began in August 2017.”

According to the BoG, it has revoked the licences of 9 universal banks, 347 microfinance companies, 39 microcredit companies, 15 savings and loans companies, eight finance house companies, and two non-bank institutions.

Electricity tax rebates for manufacturers would be backdated to June this year following the amendment to the Income Tax Act.

All manufacturers will qualify for a 20 percent tax cut on their electricity bill in the 12 months period to June next year.

However, starting July 2020 manufacturers will have to meet a criteria set by the government to continue enjoying the tax cuts.
The tax rebate is expected to stimulate the manufacturing sector to create more jobs and expand the base.
The manufacturers will see a 20 percent tax reduction from their power bills, which they will claim while filing their tax returns with the Kenya Revenue Authority.

Manufacturers have welcomed the rebate saying it will help increase production and competition.

However, from July next year, companies will only qualify for the rebates once they meet tough conditions set by the government such as increasing energy consumption and capital investment by 10 percent or boosting their sales revenue by 10 percent.

The proposal was first announced in the Finance Bill 2019, allowing industries to deduct 30 per cent of their electricity expenses from their taxable income.

Actually the rebate is effective January 2019 not June 2019..

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) said road transport of petroleum products from Mombasa to Eldoret is cheaper by between Sh1,500 ($15) and Sh2,000 ($20) per cubic metre compared to pipeline transport.

Pavel Oimeke, the EPRA director-general told the National Assembly’s Energy Committee that it costs $89 per cubic metre to transport petroleum products through the pipeline from Mombasa to Kampala in Uganda. The same costs $75 per cubic metre to transport by road.

"The SGR will boost international trade."

Value of international trade (exports & imports) decreased by 4.4% in the 5 months to May 2019 to Kshs. 978.7 billion from Kshs. 1.023 trillion in a similar period.

Over this period, exports declined 5.6% to Kshs. 252.2 billion.

Imports declined by 3.96% to Kshs. 726.6 billion in the 5 months to May 2019 from Kshs. 756.5 billion in the 5 months to May 2018. This was a slower decline than the 5.6% decline in exports.

The import to export ratio in the 5 months to May 2019 worsened to 288% from 283%.

The SGR is only as good as the economy man. If guys are loosing jobs you expect exports to increase? It remains a good infrastructural project done at the right time, but at the wrong cost

Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) chief executive Jonny Anderson has announced that he will quit from the helm of the parastatal on September 30, before the expiry of his term in November.

Mr Anderson told KAA workers in a memo seen by the Business Daily on Friday that he would quit his position in the next one month, citing “personal reasons.”

‘I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that I have taken the decision not to pursue the decision of renewal my contract with KAA. This is after deep reflection and consolation with my family.

“I will be proceeding on leave on September 30, with my tenure ending on November 21, 2019. I will take fond memories of the authority, colleagues, and the incredible journey with me in my heart," Mr Anderson said.

When you listen to hass you would think that real estate is doing great. Go to the ground and try to sell a unit.

Liquidity problems in the country, household debt rising, cheaper-but-inaccessible credit for Wanjiku, and leaders bickering over who will get to control the Government coffers in 2022.

Devaluing the shilling can stimulate the economy and encourage spending, but then our country debt will go through the roof.

So sit tight and hope the roads being built at inflated budgets will somehow translate into "more movement of goods that will grow the economy"

Property sellers have the short-term boost of mattress-money being injected into circulation to beat the October deadline for the old 1000-notes.
