Tax Consulting Firms in Lagos Nigeria

Tax Consulting Firms in Lagos Nigeria help their customers with solving problems relating to withholding tax credits that are held by the Federal Inland Revenue Service. In Nigeria, companies are obligated by law to make withholding tax deductions on payments made on contracts of supply or sale of goods. Withholding tax, there is a form of advance tax pay by the party who has rendered a service or supplied goods to another under contract. The company that have deducted withholding tax at source from its vendors are of necessity required to remit such deductions to the Federal Inland Revenue Service. In doing so, it must state the name of the company whose moneys have been withheld  as withholding that for that company to benefit from such payments. In turn, the Revenue Service will issue a Withholding Tax Credit to the the name of the Company that suffered the advance tax payments. It is therefore the responsibility of such company to forward such withholding tax credit notes to the company whose money were withheld in the first place.
