Here is a solution for you!
‘Tax Discourse’, with Vi-M Professional Solutions.
‘Tax Discourse’, with Vi-M Professional Solutions is an avenue through which we at Vi-M, make personalised and professional tax advisory accessible and very affordable to every Nigerian taxpayer; an initiative, which will enable us support the everyday Nigerian taxpayer with strategic insights and knowledge (on an on-going basis) on how to better navigate any tax challenge.
‘Tax Discourse with Vi-M Professional Solutions’ is offered in 2 ways.
First is ‘Tax Discourse Webinars’:
A four to six hours tax advisory webinar session (to recur periodically);
To be held via zoom;
Where participants with tax issues, worries or concerns can unburden themselves and get personalised professional tax advisory/ guidance from our expert tax advisors;
Participants can also build tax knowledge from the solutions proffered to other participants;
After the webinar follows a free 10-minute one-on-one clinic per participant requiring further clarifications on their tax issues;
All at a very affordable fee of N5,000 per participant, per session! (less than the cost of an evening sit out); and we will talk through your tax troubles and help you save considerable tax costs!
Last session was held on Wednesday, 26 May 2021. Next session will be announced soon.
*Limited slots are available per session, to enable us adequately cater to all participants during the webinar.
*Participants are advised to choose a unique number or nickname to adopt during registration for the webinar, and during the webinar too. This is to protect participants’ identities or personal information during the general webinar session.
And the second is ‘Tax Discourse (On-Demand)’
Designed for taxpayers in Nigeria who require tax advisory or guidance on-the-go; or those who would prefer private sessions to the webinar sessions,
Tax Discourse (On-Demand) is on-going private tax advisory chat sessions, to be held on-demand, for every taxpayer in Nigeria in need of tax advice or guidance.
At a fee of N750 per minute only, allowing taxpayers the flexibility of effectively managing tax advisory costs. Typically, many people who call in for tax guidance/ help get all the answers in less than 2 minutes. The call only lasts longer if the taxpayer takes longer in explaining his or her issues.
Just pay for the one minute (N750 per minute) or few minutes you spend with our expert tax advisors on the phone, anytime you need tax advisory. Pay only when you need it; book anytime and any day!
Taxpayers can book for tax discourse (on-demand) any day (though we recommend keeping Sundays holy!), and any time of the day between 8.00am to 6.00pm.
Chat sessions are to hold through voice or video phone calls – taxpayer to choose.
Countless number of taxpayers are suffering in silence!
There is scarcity of good tax knowledge out there and the tax laws are so vast that not one professional services firm can draw up a tax literature book that comprehensively captures all the ramifications of tax laws or tax issues one can encounter in Nigeria.
Even if they did, no one taxpayer needs all of the information at the same time.
So you find bits and pieces of tax information, tax alerts, tax webinars and even rumours out there, each dealing with a relatively small aspect of taxation or speaking to one or two tax solutions or issues for some group of taxpayers or another, at each point in time.
For taxpayers who can afford it, and who know how or where to get good and professional tax advice, the solution to this problem has been to engage professional tax advisors on call or retainership.
While millions of taxpayers who need professional help with their taxes but cannot afford it, or do not know where to get good and professional advice, suffer in silence.
Many are afraid that their business and tax information will be leaked to the tax man.
With Tax Discourse, this silence can be broken and the problems solved.
With a token of N5,000 (or N750/ minute for the on-demand private sessions) any taxpayer or interested participants can join a live advisory session to unburden themselves of their tax issues and get personalised professional guidance or help or strategic tax planning solutions.
No stories at all. No leakage of your confidential information in whatever form. No disappointments, a 10-minute each, one-on-one sessions will follow the general session to ensure that everyone requiring further attention is adequately attended to.
So many frequent changes in tax laws!
For many years up until year 2020, just a few changes have been made to very few tax laws.
All of a sudden, with the Finance Act 2019, seven important tax laws changed and brought with it drastic changes to how the taxes apply to practically EVERY taxpayer and tax stakeholder in Nigeria.
In 2021, the Finance Act 2020 was also issued, bringing with it, 81 changes to 14 tax and related laws.
In 2022, another Finance Act will be issued to support the realisation of Nigeria’s 2022 budgeted revenues (as indicated by Nigeria’s ruling party).
How can a Nigerian taxpayer effectively navigate this ever changing tax terrain in Nigeria without very good, affordable and continuous professional tax advice?
Tax Discourse with Vi-M Professional Solutions is bridging this gap and solving this need on an on-going basis for just N5,000 per participant, per session. (or N750/ minute for the on-demand private sessions).
Tax officials in Nigeria are hard to deal with!
Ever had a tax audit or query or the tax man’s visit in Nigeria?
Most times the best way people save themselves from the endless drama and headaches is to get their tax consultant or tax advisor to deal with the tax officers directly.
But what if you have no tax consultant and cannot afford a good one at the moment?
You can get help speedily and affordably through Tax Discourse with Vi-M Professional Solutions.
Get on the session and get strategic insights on how to deal with the tax man’s queries or visits, on your own peculiar situation for just N5,000 per participant, per session (or N750/ minute for the on-demand private sessions).
