Several taxes exist in the Nigerian business climate and are imposable by virtue of the Nigerian Tax laws. Resident and non-resident individuals and companies have a legal obligation to comply with tax laws and regulations. A proper understanding of the concepts, fundamental principles, legal basis as well as tax planning opportunities would enhance compliance, accuracy and efficiency in making remittances to the relevant tax authorities. This will also reduce the risk of exposure to avoidable interests and penalties.

The basic tax for the non-tax professional training programme is designed to introduce participants to the fundamental principles (legal bases, administration and computation) of Nigerian taxes – Companies Income Tax, Tertiary Education Tax, Personal Income Tax, Value Added Tax and Withholding Tax; as well as relevant and practical issues pertaining to Nigerian taxes.

The course will also cover reliefs, allowable and non-allowable expenses; and employee-related contributions such as Pension and National Housing Fund contributions, amongst others.

Some of the key concepts that will be discussed at the training programme include:
• Identification of taxable and non-taxable income under each of the relevant tax types
• Determination of expenses that are allowable for tax purposes in accordance with the provisions of each
law and permissible tax reliefs
• Operation of VAT in Nigeria; input and output VAT; and practical issues with VAT operations in Nigeria
