The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has said that the implementation of the Finance Act would lead to richer Nigerians paying more taxes in the country.
Some Nigerians have just realised that they now have to pay 7.5% VAT every time they make phone calls or send an SMS. They don't like this very much.
There are reasons why it may be wrong to compare VAT in Nigeria with that of other countries. Our VAT is not a proper VAT.
