Webinar Series to Review and Discuss FIRS’ Information Circulars on the Finance Act, 2019

The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has recently issued Information Circulars clarifying many provisions of the Finance Act, 2019. There are Seven different Information Circulars dealing with different topics under the Finance Act, 2019.Unfortunately, many of the explanations provided by the FIRS place additional tax technical, compliance, documentation and payment burdens on all taxpayers, including small businesses. Many of such tax burdens were hitherto thought to have been eased off by the letter of the Finance Act 2019.

We are organising a 3-part (1.5 hr each) webinar series to discuss the contents of the Information Circulars vis a vis the provisions of the Finance Act, 2019 and we will be highlighting what it all implies for taxpayers in simple practical terms.

The webinars will hold everyday from Tuesday, 19 May 2020 to Thursday, 21 May 2020, from 12.00pm to 1.30 pm on each of the days.

On day 1, 19 May 2020, we will focus on detailed discussions on the implications of the contents of FIRS’ Information Circular on Companies Income Tax.

On day 2, 20 May 2020, we will discuss FIRS’ Information Circular on Value Added Tax and its practical implications.

On day 3, 21 May 2020, we will discuss FIRS’ Information Circular on Stamp Duties, commencement of business, cessation of business and business re-organisation.

This three-part webinar series is offered at a one-time registration fee of N30,000per attendee.

On day 4, 22 May 2020, from 12.00pm to 2.00pm, we will have a special wrap-up session titled: “Taxation of MSMEs in Nigeria: A Tax Training and Discussion Session”.

 This is driven by the fact that many small and medium sized business owners still find it difficult to comprehend tax and how it applies to their businesses.

The periodic changes in tax laws do not also help matters. The Finance Act, 2019 presents a major change in Nigeria’s tax regime that is partly but not totally beneficial to MSMEs. 

The clarifications made by the FIRS in its recently released Information Circulars on the Finance Act, 2019 even places more tax burden on MSMEs than earlier presented by the provisions of the Finance Act, 2019.  

Through this 4th day wrap up webinar, Vi-M will:

1. Discuss the implications of the Finance Act, 2019 for MSMEs, particularly as presented by the Federal Inland Revenue Service in its recently released Information Circulars; and
2. Answer as many questions as possible as it relates to taxes for MSMEs.

This webinar is offered at a registration fee of N10,000 per attendee.
