KRA iTax Reports / VAT3 Returns

Go to Reports > Formatted Reports

The iTax Reports (TIMS) will use the month selected from the “FROM” field.

For each report, you should export to CSV as shown here.

Select NO, when asked to open the file.

Usually, MS Excel will open this file, but because the CU INV numbers are very long, they may end up having 0000 at the end, making them incorrect.

If the .csv file is opened in NOTEPAD, you will see the data is correct.

Simply import this file into the KRA sheet

Below are instructions for non-TIMS reports #

From Reports > iTax Reports, you can quickly and accurately generate your iTax returns file!
