Hermon Barristers & Solicitors are at the forefront of an ever evolving Tax landscape in the Nigerian business scene.
As a leading law firm with a distinguished tax practice in Lagos, we believe that we have to ensure that the tax responsibility of our clients to the Regulatory Authorities are met with. With the tax authorities continually examining the tax compliance strategies of multinationals and domestic companies within Nigeria, we ensure that we devise and develop tax strategies for our clients that can easily fit into the tax regime of the Nigerian government.
The Tax Regime in Nigeria
Tax authorities both at the Federal and State(s) level are interested in increasing the contribution of tax to Nigeria’s GDP, hence the renewed, laser focus on tax compliance, particularly in Nigeria’s leading commercial cities of Abuja and Lagos. The aim is to exponentially increase tax revenues in Nigeria. Add to this is the fact that the multiplicity of tax regimes applicable across Federal, State and Local Government levels across the country presents a going concern for entities and businesses navigating through the country’s commercial scene.
We work with clients to define their Tax Departments and ensure Compliance with extant Lagos Taxation Laws
Many companies and multinationals unwittingly jump into the dragnet of the tax authorities because of non-compliance. To keep pace with the requirements as set out by the regulatory authorities that define and govern the tax regime in Nigeria, our top tax lawyers at Hermon Legal Practitioners helps multinationals and companies with their seat of administration in Lagos to assess their tax compliance and ensure that they can meet the requisite requirements for tax reporting to the authorities.
