Nandi County Government has adopted an upgraded revenue collection system aimed at boosting revenue collection.
The County Minister in charge of Finance Alfred Lagat on Monday said the new system provides for payment of county services through mobile money transfer and easy tracking of revenue collection.
“The upgraded system will seal leakages as we seek to double our revenue collection,”said Lagat.
The upgraded system provides a database of all traders within the county, a mobile money transfer platform where residents are able to pay for business licenses and will receive invoices through email and a sms alert, parking, land rates, rent and other fees and other levies demanded by the government.
The Finance CEC flagged off the pilot of the automation of trader-mapping in Kapsabet town.
Through the Revenue Collection and Management System (RCMS), all business premises will be mapped using Geographical Positioning System (GPS).
Lagat said mapping will simplify revenue collection and ultimately assist in tailor making services such as trainings and supporting infrastructure based on the needs of traders.
