VAT now 7.5% as Buhari signs 2019 finance bill into law

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The proposed increase in the rate of value-added tax from the present 5% to 7.5% has been signed into law.

President Muhammadu Buhari signed the 2019 finance bill into law in Abuja on Monday.

The bill was submitted to the national assembly alongside the budget.

However, the bill signing is coming 27 days after the 2020 budget was signed into law on December 17.

“I am pleased to announce that this morning I signed into law the Finance Bill, 2019,” a tweet on the president’s Twitter account read.

“We introduced the bill alongside the 2020 budget, to reform Nigeria’s tax laws to align with global best practices, support MSMEs in line with our Ease of Doing Business Reforms, incentivize investments in infrastructure and capital markets and raise government revenues.”

The law seeks to amend the Petroleum Profit Tax Act, Customs and Excise Tariff Act, Company Income Tax Act, Personal Income Tax Act, Value Added Tax, Stamp Duties Act and the Capital Gains Tax.

The bill also made provisions for companies with an annual turnover of less than N25 million to be exempted from paying company income tax.

The federal government also raised the threshold from which stamp duty will be charged for online transactions from the current N1,000 to N10,000.    (The Cable)
