The budget is a summary statement indicating the estimated amount of revenue that the government requires and hopes to raise. It also indicates the various sources from which the revenue will be raised and the projects on which the government intends to spend the revenue in a particular financial year. The budget in Kenya is presented to parliament by the Minister of Finance around mid June. In the budget the Minister reviews government revenue and expenditure in the previous financial year. The minister presents tax proposals i.e. how he intends to raise the proposed revenue from taxation for parliament to approve.
