Tax policy on SMEs in Nigeria – How fair?
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are the bedrock of the Nigerian economy. They serve as an important source of employment generation, economic dynamism, competition and innovation; thus contributing to national growth and poverty alleviation.
Inside the New National Tax Policy
A revised National Tax Policy (NTP or the Policy) was approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) of Nigeria on 1 February 2017. The approval is an aftermath of the submission made by the NTP Review Committee, set up by the Minister of Finance in August 2016 for the review of the old NTP that was initially issued in 2012. The committee, headed by Prof Abiola Sanni, submitted its report in September 2016.
