Executive Summary

The Business Registration Service is established through an Act of Parliament, the Business Registration Service Act 2015 to ensure effective administration of the laws relating to the incorporation, registration, operation and management of companies, partnerships and firms and for connected purposes.

Kenya improved 12 places, in the latest ease of doing business ranking, with Kenya finishing 80th in the 2017 ease of doing business index that surveyed 190 economies compared to last year’s position 92. The new ranking, the highest since 2008 when the country finished in 84th position, means Kenya is the third most competitive economy in Africa after Mauritius (25th) and Rwanda (41st). The changes in ranking are partly attributed to reforms that have been undertaken in business laws and registration processes, which fall under the administration of the Business Registration Service.
