Nigeria: Automated tax system deployed

The Federal Inland Revenue Service on 30 March 2020 announced the deployment of the “automated tax administration system” (ATAS)—a tax system providing access to data, information, and records that are stored in taxpayer systems, electronic devices or cloud computing facilities (including point of sales or invoicing platforms maintained, operated, owned or controlled by taxpayers or their agents).


The connection of ATAS to taxpayers’ systems will begin no earlier than 30 days or by 30 April 2021.
