FIRS Blames NIMASA, NPA for International Shipping Lines Tax Default

FIRS had issued a warning to international shipping line operators in the country to either regularize their tax affairs with the tax body by December 31, 2023, or face sanctions. The tax body, in a public notice posted on its Twitter handle, said it observed that many international shipping lines have refused to comply with the tax obligation imposed since December 2021. The maritime agencies must demand a tax clearance certificate before anyone can do business in that sector. Either you come new or continue the business, the agencies must demand a tax clearance certificate. Any international shipping companies that want to do business here must approach FIRS to get a tax clearance certificate before NIMASA, NPA or what have you, give them clearance to operate.
