ABC Bank launched webinars as a customer education and brand building tool. This will help in disseminating relevant knowledge that will improve our customers’ financial management skills and build stronger relationships with them. Due to the current pandemic, we will be conducting webinars as an avenue to share financial knowledge. We will be doing a series of targeted webinars with carefully selected niche audiences.
The Bank will be partnering with various experts for these webinars. For our first webinar, we partnered with Grant Thorton to demystify the new tax developments and share practical steps to handle KRA tax issues. Grant Thorton are a business advisory firm providing advisory, tax, assurance, auditing and accounting services to organisations. The Grant Thorton tax consultancy team are experts in tax and have held numerous webinars sharing knowledge and discussing tax issues. This webinar was aimed at educating small business owners on how to go about handling tax issues.
The webinar was conceptualized and executed by our SME Department led by Head of SME, Lee Gachomba, who moderated the session. “It was quite an educational session and I believe our customers got a lot of the challenges they face around tax issues when running small businesses, addressed,” said Lee Gachomba.
The Bank has integrated directly with Kenya Revenue Authority to offer our customers iTax service where they can conveniently and directly make payment of taxes through our Internet Banking platform or our branches.
