Frequently Asked Questions
VAIDS is a time-limited opportunity for taxpayers to regularize their tax status relating to previous tax periods. In exchange for fully and honestly declaring previously undisclosed assets and income, tax payers will benefit from forgiveness of overdue interest and penalties, and the assurance that they will not face criminal prosecution for tax offences or be subject to tax investigations. VAIDS ushers in an opportunity to increase the nation’s general tax awareness and compliance. 

Nigeria’s tax system is based on global best practice. It is a progressive system that ensures fairness. Those with the highest income levels should shoulder the greatest proportion of the tax burden. Whilst considerable progress has been made with taxing those in formal employment, self-employed persons, professionals and some companies are able to evade full tax payment due to the inability of the tax authorities to assess their true income and thereby tax them accurately. According to the Joint Tax Board (JTB), as at May 2017 the total number of taxpayers in Nigeria is just 14 million out of an estimated 69.9 million who are economically active.

Nigeria’s tax to GDP ratio, at just 6%, is one of the lowest in the world (compared to India’s of 16%, Ghana’s of 15.9%, and South Africa’s of 27%). Most developed nations have tax to GDP ratios of between 32% and 35%.

Some of the ways in which taxes are evaded include:

  • Manipulating accounting records by keeping two sets of books
  • Many states have lacked the machinery to accurately track the true income of their residents.
  • Use of complex structures in transactions to evade taxes.
  • Non registration for VAT, or charging of VAT without remitting to FIRS.
  • Non payment of Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on asset disposals.

Nigeria's low tax revenues are at variance with the lifestyles of a large number of its people and with the value of assets known to be owned by Nigerians resident around the world. There has been a systemic breakdown of compliance with the tax system with various strategies used to evade tax obligations. These include but are not limited to, transfer of assets overseas, the use of offshore companies in tax havens to secure assets, and the registration of assets in nominee names. In addition despite having some of the most profitable and well capitalized companies in Africa, the level of tax remittance is low.

There is currently a global initiative to tackle the problem of illicit financial flows and tax evasion, which has contributed to the country’s underdevelopment. A report by former South African Premier, Thabo Mbeki found that the amount of illicit financial flows out of Africa exceeded the amount of development aid that Africa receives. Nigeria has the highest level of illicit financial flows in Africa.

As part of the global support to rebuild Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari, the Government has secured the co-operation of a number of nation states in its quest to repatriate funds due to it. Nigeria has also signed agreements with a number of nations, which provide for the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEI). Countries who are party to this agreement include Switzerland, Panama, the Bahamas and other tax havens. Additionally, banking information will easily be shared across countries due to newly implemented Common Reporting Standards (CRS).

On 16 August, 2016 the Federal Executive Council approved Nigeria’s participation in the Country-by-Country reporting standard. This will provide tax authorities with greater transparency into the scale of multinational company operations, and enable increased detection of profit shifting and other tax evasion strategies. In addition, Nigeria has signed up for the establishment of the Beneficial Ownership Register at the Anti-Corruption Summit in London in 2016. The will give us access to true owners of properties in the UK and other participating countries.

Within Nigeria, recent reforms provide additional information to the tax authorities. There is now increased interagency cooperation providing information from BVN, NFIU, State Land Registries, CAC, and other agencies to create an accurate financial picture of Nigeria’s tax payers. In addition, the asset tracing team of the Ministry of Finance has engaged international asset tracing professionals who have been gathering information on individuals and companies which suggests that the level of non-compliance is significant; therefore VAIDS is offering an opportunity for tax payers to voluntarily regularize their tax status.

Even though ignorance of the law is not an excuse, Government has decided to take the pragmatic approach of offering an amnesty window to allow Nigerians, who may have evaded tax, whether ignorantly or deliberately, the opportunity to do their civic duty and pay the correct taxes whilst providing much needed revenue for Nigeria’s infrastructure. A number of countries, including Indonesia, Italy and Argentina, who have seen their tax revenues illegally moved to other nations have undertaken similar programmes to fund their national development. This will reduce the amount that Government will need to borrow for essential projects and will enable Nigeria to make a concerted effort to upgrade essential infrastructure and spur development.

Upon expiration of the Voluntary Asset and Income Declaration programme, Government will commence criminal prosecution of those who have evaded taxes and yet failed to take advantage of the scheme.

The Scheme is expected to last for 9 months only from 1st July, 2017 to 31st March, 2018. There will be no renewal or extension, once the scheme period has expired all remaining tax defaulters who have not taken advantage of its will face the full force of the law.

Tax evasion is a crime punishable, upon conviction, by imprisonment of up to 5 years, while the taxpayer will still be required to pay the tax due along with the associated interest and penalties. Typically, a penalty of 10% of the tax due is assessed, along with related interest charges that accrue at 21% per annum, commencing from the due date of the related tax charge. In some cases, the penalty assessed is 100% of the tax due and further, the related assets are liable to be forfeited. Those taking advantage of the Scheme by declaring honestly and fully will be free from prosecution and will qualify for the forgiveness of penalties and interest.

Another benefit of participating in the Scheme, is that tax payers will be able to transfer assets that they had previously held by nominees into their own name. It should be remembered that many Nigerians have lost assets in the course of trying to conceal them from the authorities. Such losses typically occur in the event of death or an urgent need to liquidate assets when required documentation and proof of ownership cannot be provided. The global focus on illicit financial flows is such that global regulations will only become tighter with time, thus this opportunity to regularise should be seized. Declaration allows assets to be legally and formally held by the true owner.

The Scheme will cover all Federal and State taxes such as Companies Income Tax, Personal Income Tax, Petroleum Profits Tax, Capital Gains Tax, Stamp Duties, Tertiary Education Tax.

While the statute of limitations for a tax investigation for honest returns is limited to six years, there is no limit where a fraudulent return has been submitted. A condition of VAIDS is that tax payers will declare fully and honestly.

VAIDS is open to all persons who are in default on their tax liabilities. The Scheme is specifically targeted at taxpayers who:

  • have not been fully declaring their taxable income/assets;
  • have not been paying the tax due at all and or
  • have been underpaying or under remitting

It does not matter whether the relevant tax default arose from undeclared assets within or outside the country. If tax should have been paid, VAIDS is providing a once in a lifetime opportunity to declare the tax outstanding and resolve it definitively.

The Scheme covers all taxable persons and entities including individuals, trusts, executors, registered companies and statutory companies.

Further information can be obtained from the information unit of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), various State Boards Internal Revenue Services(SBIRS) and the dedicated website of the Scheme www.vaids.gov.ng.

All taxes paid under the Scheme are to be collected by the relevant tax authorities including the FIRS and SBIRS, depending on the type of tax in issue. Payments should be made to the Relevant Tax Authority quoting your full name and TIN as a reference. The bank will issue a receipt for the payment.

The Federal Government appreciates that many defaulters have assets but may not have cash. Therefore taxpayers will be allowed to enter into arrangements to pay outstanding tax liabilities in installments. Taxpayers may, at the discretion of the relevant authority, be granted up to three years to pay their liability, but will be obligated to pay interest on the outstanding balance.

Once you register for VAIDS by filing the Declaration form, agents of the Relevant Tax Authority can help you to calculate your tax liability. VAIDS will also be providing extensive training to legal advisers, tax accountants and other professionals to ensure that taxpayers fully understand their obligations under Nigeria’s tax laws.

Taxpayers will be expected to remain fully compliant with tax laws following the Scheme, failing which, they may be forced to forfeit the tax forgiveness granted under VAIDS and be liable to pay past liabilities in full.

Registration for a Tax Identification Number would be the first step for persons who have never paid tax. Your application for a TIN will be fast tracked.

The idea of the Scheme is that it is a voluntary programme, the decision to participate should therefore be left to the taxpayers. The FIRS shall give effective publicity to the program and encourage as many people as possible to take advantage of it.

The Scheme is open to all those who were liable to tax in Nigeria. It covers Nigerian residents who had taxable undeclared income outside Nigeria and non – residents who earned undeclared income derived from or accruing within Nigeria.

Those who are resident outside of Nigeria are encouraged to make an online declaration, or to appoint a local agent to make the necessary declaration on their behalf.

Those who fail to take advantage of the Scheme and are later found to have under declared their income or assets will be treated as wilful tax evaders and will therefore face the full force of the law.

Specifically, we have engaged on retainership, one of the world’s leading asset tracing and recovery firms who will track the true assets of those who have not participated but are believed to have underpaid their taxes.

This will be supported by criminal prosecution, and recovery of taxes due with full penalties and interest. In addition, we plan a “Name and Shame” programme that will reveal the identities of tax evaders.

Furthermore, the Relevant Tax Authorities are in the process of profiling certain categories of non-compliant taxpayers for ongoing audits and investigations, in line with the tax compliance reforms. As such, taxpayers are encouraged to make the most of the time-limited opportunity available under the Scheme to declare their incomes and assets, and pay outstanding tax liabilities to avoid the adverse consequences inherent in the tax enforcement processes to be implemented by the Relevant Tax Authorities at the end of the Scheme.

Nigerian tax law is clear that Nigerian tax residents are liable to pay tax on their income earned anywhere in the world. Nigerian tax residents include the following:

  • Individuals that derive income from sources in Nigeria;
  • Employees that are in Nigerian employment or resident in Nigeria for at least 183 days within a twelve month period; and
  • Nigerian companies who were incorporated or have a fixed base in Nigeria.

Some Nigerians own assets overseas, but do not earn any revenue on them, rather they are for personal use. In such cases, they might not have taxable income but if the original purchase of those assets was, in any way, financed from revenue earned by a Nigerian tax payer but on which the correct amount of tax was not paid in Nigeria, then the unpaid tax liability may attach to that overseas asset.

The information obtained on some citizens suggest clearly that the funds they used to purchase overseas assets far exceed the income declared in the tax returns in the year pf purchase. Such Tax Returns are therefore rendered false and a tax liability exists.

The use of Tax Avoidance Schemes is legal but tax evasion is not. If the ultimate beneficial owner of those assets had paid all taxes on the funds prior to their transfer to the tax shelter, then there will be no additional liability except any tax payable on further income earned on those funds. However if the correct amount of tax was not paid prior to transfer, then a liability exists and Government is entitled to trace its tax claim through to those assets and any income that arises from them.

All assets owned, whether held directly or indirectly should be formally declared. VAIDS will also entail the creation of proper records so that future dealings with such assets will be properly recorded. The owner of assets held in nominee’s names can then freely transfer them based on the extant law.

After declaration, the owner of assets held in nominee’s names can then freely transfer them based on the extant law.

The grace period recently allowed by FIRS for waiver of interest and penalties pursuant to the recent tax amnesty has lapsed. VAIDS is more comprehensive in terms of taxes and timeframe. It covers personal taxes as well as company taxes. The commitments made by the FIRS during the Scheme will be respectably saved for discovery of new facts, non-disclosure and partial disclosure.

This will be supported by criminal prosecution, and recovery of taxes due with full penalties and interest. In addition, we plan a “Name and Shame” programme that will reveal the identities of tax evaders.

Yes. The tax authority will review the information supplied by the taxpayer. If they are not satisfied with its completeness, they may ask for additional information. Indeed, The Relevant Tax Authorities are empowered by specific provisions of the relevant tax laws to require participating taxpayers to produce any books, documents, accounts, returns and other records.

Within the Scheme period, an applicant can file an amended declaration if further tax liabilities are identified. However, all information must be received within the duration of VAIDS.

All taxes already paid will be taken into account into determining the final tax position of a taxpayer.

No! Declaration cannot be made anonymously. For any taxpayer to get clearance, he must have declared correctly and made payment in his own name or that of his company as the case may be. Tax declarations are however treated as confidential by the tax authorities.

The confidentiality of the information you provide under the Scheme is assured. Measures have been put in place for information received by the tax authority will be kept in strict confidence, and will not be disclosed to third parties other than in compliance with extant provisions of relevant laws.

Questions wey people dey carry ask on top nigerian voluntary assets and income declaration scheme

VAIDS na one time opening for where contri pipo wey suppose dey pay tax fit to come to confirm all d mata wey dey on top dia tax, make evrytin for dey kampe.

Dis one mean say if contri man fit come out talk truth of all de proproti wey im get wey im neva tell government before, government go forgive am for all de tax wey im no pay since all d time wey im suppose don dey pay. Still inside de forgiveness, government go still make sure say im no go enter wahala investigation on top tax mata, and dem no go carry am go court on top of de tax wey im don chop before before.

Dis VAIDS na government way to take make sure say all contri people sabi de mata of tax wey dey very important and to make sure say dem dey pay make dem no enter wahala.

First for all, de way wey Nigeria dey do tax mata na de best way for dis whole world. Infact, with our style, dem no fit to cheat anybody. People wey dey collect big money chop, na dem dey pay big tax.

De tin be say, even though government don put plenty beta waka for ground on top tax payment, some pipo like de ones wey dey do handwork, de ones wey get dia own business come employ diasef, de companies dem wey no be government get am and some oda petty petty work dem, no dey pay dia tax complete. In fact, some of dem no dey pay anytin at all at all, because de tax officers dem no get way to take know d real proproti and money wey dis people get true true or how much de business dey commot and so, dem no fit tax dem well.

According by wetin Joint Tax Board wey be JTB for short don calculate for May 2017, na only 14 million contri pipo dey pay tax well for inside de 69 million wey dey work dey chop for Nigeria.

If u take we GDP for Nigeria take do maths for we tax, na 6 percent we dey pay. This 6 percent join for de smallest tax for de whole world. Just imagine say Nigeria own na 6 percent for where India na 16 percent, Ghana here dey pay 15.9 percent and South Africa own sef reach 27 percent. In fact all dis big big contris wey don tear eye well well dey pay reach 32 to 35 percent sef.

E get some ways wey contri pipo dey take dodge dia tax wey dem suppose dey pay. Some of dem na:

  • To dey do magomago come get two account books for office, one for on top, another one under table.
  • De ones wey government no sabi how much money dia business dey commot and dem sef no open mouth talk.
  • To dey follow long journey wit plenty story for business mata make nobody for understand how de business.
  • De ones wey no just register for Value Added Tax wey be VAT for short, or de ones wey dey collect de VAT money, and dem no go give government wey get am.
  • De pipo wey sell proproti wey no pay Capital Gains Tax wey be CGT give government.

To talk true, de small tax wey we dey pay for Nigeria no follow with de big man life wey many contri pipo dey live for dis contri, or de plenty big big proproti wey Nigerian get for both inside and outside de contri. Na Nigeria even get some of de biggest companies for Africa wey money boku for inside but we dey pay chikini money as tax.

For all over de world, dem don start plan to take commot d magomago movement of money and de dodging of tax payment wey dey cause make contri no move forward. E dey even spoil contri because na corruption. The premier for South Africa before before Thabo Mbeki, do one calculate wey come show say de magomago money wey dey disappear commot for Africa plenty well well pass d help money wey dey enter. And na Nigeria naim get de highest magomago movement of money.

For inside de global support to beta dis contri under dis government of President Muhammadu Buhari, de government don do agreement with some other contris dem make dem for dey return money wey no be dia own. Nigeria don still do join body with dis contris make dem dey exchange information under the Automatic Exchange of Information wey be AEI for short. All dis join body go make sure say we government go dey get information sharp sharp on any kain movement of magomago money or dodging of tax wey we contri pipo dey do.

De contris wey we join do dis agreement na Switzerland, Panama, The Bahamas and all de other places wey e dey easy to hide money make person no pay tax before. On top all dis one, dem go dey share bank information well well now because of d Common Reporting Standard wey be CRS for short wey don dey now.

Na for de 16th of August, 2016 naim we senior government Federal Executive Council gree make Nigeria chuk hand for inside d Country by Country reporting standard mata. Dis one now don helep we tax officers dem to take shine eye on top all dis big companies and how business dey move, wit all dis pipo wey dey dodge tax run go another contri.

E still get de one wey Nigeria follow chuk hand for London inside 2016 wey dem call Beneficial Ownership Register. Dis one go fit show we government de pipo wey get house and proproti for yonder come dey do like say dem no get anytin. Even for inside dis contri, de new new laws sef dey help give information to de tax officers. All dis agencies dem don dey share information like BVN, NFIU, State land registry and even CAC sef, make tax officers fit get complete idea of contri pipo money wey dey enter pocket.

Pipo wey dey siddon trace other pipo proproti for inside Ministry of Finance wey dem dey call Asset Tracers don call some correct professionals from yonder come wey sabi follow proproti and who get am, make dem for join body to gather information on contri pipo and companies wey dey dis contri. After all dis work, dem don see say many pipo dey dodge tax or dem no just sabi say dem suppose even pay tax sef. Na why government don make dis VAIDS now make everybody fit come confirm im tax status make evrytin for settle as evrybody go dey pay im tax.

Na true say "I no know, I no sabi" no be excuse to tif, beht we government don sorry for contri people say make dem no kuku worry for de one wey dem don dodge before, as long as dem ready to come out talk true, sake of say e beta to see people come out settle with tax officers, make dem change begin pay dia tax make contri for go front well well.

Plenty contris like Indonesia, Argentina, and Italy sef wey see say dia money don dey move go other contris because of magomago, don try dis method and e work. Dis one go even helep we government make dem no dey borrow borrow to take do de tins wey dem suppose do for dis contri with tax money and e go make our contri tear eye well well for development mata.

Wen dis correct VAIDS time don pass, de pipo wey still no come out decide say dem wan hide dey dodge tax, once dem begin catch dem na court and prison palaver straight.

De VAIDS start from 1st of July 2017 to 31st March 2018. Dat one be say de tin go last for 9 months. Dem no go shift d date go front, and de tin no go start again o. So once de tin pass, anybody wey no gree chuk hand come declare, e go see de hand of law for im body and im business.

To dodge tax na crime wey if dem catch u, u fit enter prison, dey there jejeli reach up to five years sef and d person go still pay all de tax wey im dey owe with interest on top. If na normal case, na 10 percent of d tax wey de person dey owe with interest of like 21 percent per annum plus on top de real tax wey im dey owe naim de person go pay. Beht e get sometimes wey na 100 percent plus on top interest and de tax naim de person go pay, and dem fit to even seize de land and proproti wey de person get sef.

So people wey do sharp sharp join de scheme now go dey free from all dis palaver wey dem suppose get as dem no dey pay tax. Government go forgive dem and dem no go go prison.

Another beta tin be say contri pipo wey don dey hide proproti up and down since make government no catch dem go fit transfer dia proproti back to dia name after dem don dey under d scheme. Plenty contri pipo don loss dia house and land sef because dem put another person name for paper make dem for fit dodge. If de person come die, or e wan do sharp sharp sell de proproti because e need money, anything fit to happen because no be im name dey de papers. De way wey governments for all over de world don shine eye for dis mata of magomago money wey dey move up and down, e go beta make evrybody jejeli put hand for dis scheme, go declare asset.

Dis scheme cover all d Federal and State taxes wey dey dis contri, plus including Company Income tax, Personal Income tax, Petroleum Profit tax, Capital Gains tax, Stamp duties with Tertiary Education tax.

For normal situation, law give only six years. But as long as contri man come out, come declare truth of evrytin wey im get, d scheme don cover am be dat.

The VAIDS dey open yakata for anibodi wey no dey pay im tax well before. E dey even target dis kain pipo sef:

  • De pipo wey neva declare de tins and proproti wey dem get true true give government.
  • De ones wey no dey pay dia tax at all at all.
  • De pipo wey no dey pay de tax wey dem suppose pay complete.

Weda de tax wey de person dey owe na for business wey dey inside dis contri or na outside de proproti dey, dis scheme na to settle im tax mata once and for all.

Dis scheme dey cover both contri pipo, contri pipo business and company wey dem don register and de one wey just dey, with even pipo wey dey sign put on top oda pipo company wey dem dey call executors.

Plenty information dey to collect from de information office for inside Federal Inland Revenue Service wey be FIRS for short, or person still fit to waka go any State Board Inland Revenue Service, SBIRS for short. E even still dey de website wen dem open for computer because of de scheme come call am www.vaids.gov.ng.

Dem go first look d kain tax issue wey person get, but anybodi wey wan pay tax na to give de FIRS or de SBIRS. Person go must pay de tax money give de government office wey e suppose go. Dat one na Relevant Tax Authority and im go write im full name and im TIN number, come collect receipt from d bank.

Federal Government sef know say plenty pipo wey dey owe tax money fit no get plenty money for hand, na proproti dem get. So government go come do agreement with de person on top how im go dey pay all d tax money wey im dey owe small small.

Contri pipo wey dey owe tax money wey come enter under dis scheme go fit to get reach three years to pay all tax money of before before finish. But dem go still pay interest wey don gather on top de money.

Once u just carry declaration form take register put for de scheme, sharp sharp, officers for de Relevant Tax Authority go do calculate of de money wey u dey owe for tax give you.

VAIDS go even still do training give all dis lawyers dem wey dey give advise on top money mata, join with accountants of tax and all de other people wey de mata concern, make all contri pipo for know evrytin wey dem suppose do for under tax law for Nigeria.

Contri pipo wey suppose dey pay tax go must follow evrytin wey dey for inside tax law for Nigeria for inside de scheme o. If not, make dem just forget de forgiveness wey government give dem under de VAIDS, know say dem go pay for all de dodging wey dem don do.

De first tin wey dem go do for pipo wey neva even get TIN wey enter inside de VAIDS scheme na to do sharp sharp registration of TIN for dem.

De mata be say dis scheme no be by force tin. Na de one wey pipo go come do by dia sef. Wetin FIRS go do na to give plenty information make people know come join.

Dis scheme dey open to anybodi wey suppose dey pay tax for Nigeria. E cover contri pipo wey get money wey dem suppose dey pay tax put outside Nigeria even with pipo wey no dey stay Nigeria at all but dem get money wey dey come from Nigeria wey dem suppose pay tax put.

Contri pipo wey dey stay outside Nigeria fit to register for dis scheme through computer or get agent wey dey stay inside Nigeria wey go come helep dem to do am.

D pipo wey no join for dis scheme and government come later see say dem dey dodge no pay tax money complete or at all at all, dem don enter serious wahala be dat.

In fact sef, dem don do employment give de people wey sabi follow people money do investigate for who get wetin for dis world, make dem come check all de pipo wey no chuk hand for dis scheme but dem dey dodge payment dia tax. Once dem catch dem, na to enter court and prison mata with complete payment of de money and extra on top sef. And dem go show evrybodi d names of dis people wey dodge no pay dia tax to expose dem give contri pipo.

Now now sef, all dis tax officers don dey check pipo wey e be like say dem dey dodge no pay dia tax for serious investigation mata for under de tax law for Nigeria. So all contri pipo wey suppose dey pay tax, make dem do sharp sharp joli d beta opportunity wey dis scheme dey bring before d time go pass and d hand of law go begin fall on top people wey still dodge.

According by tax law for Nigeria, e get pipo wey dem dey call Nigeria Tax Resident and dem must to pay tax for any income or proproti wey dey inside and outside Nigeria give government for Nigeria. Dis Nigeria tax residents naim be:

  • People wey dey collect salary or any kain payment for inside Nigeria.
  • People wey dem employ put for Nigeria or de ones wey dey stay inside Nigeria reach up to 183 days for inside one year.
  • Companies wey get office for inside Nigeria wey dem for dey work.

Na true say some contri pipo get proproti outside dis contri wey no dey commot money. E fit just be house wey dem for dey stay. For dis one, dem fit dey make dem no pay tax. But if na contri person wey suppose dey pay tax, take money from dis contri build de proproti outside dis contri and im no pay de correct tax on top d money, de proproti fit to join inside d tax money wey im go pay. After correct investigation, dem don see say de money wey some contri pipo take build proproti abroad plenty pas d money wey dem say dem dey collect for Nigeria as salary or income. Dat one get magomago inside and tax debt dey ground on top am.

E get some kain Tax Avoidance Scheme wey dey for where person no go pay tax and e go dey allowed, but dodging of tax na crime. If de real real owner of de proproti don pay all im tax on de money wey de proproti dey bring before im carry am go de place wey dat Tax Avoidance Scheme dey, den no wahala.

But if de correct tax never reach government hand, den wahala dey because government get right to trace all im tax money on top dat proproti and de money wey im dey bring.

All de proproti wey person get, join de one wey dey im name o, join de one wey dey another person name, im must declare evrytin as e be. VAIDS go come open correct paper wey dem go fit dey deal with de original owner well well. U fit even transfer ur proproti back to ursef under de law wey dem dey call extant law after declaration.

D time wey FIRS bin give for dis waiver of interest and penalty for inside de tax amnesty wey dey before don pass. VAIDS shine eye well well pass dat one on top de mata of tax and de time to pay am. And e cover both tax for contri pipo wey suppose pay tax and companies too.

Any agreement wey FIRS do before, for under dis scheme e go just dey for one side first till dem discover new tins.

Yes o. De tax officers dem go check all our information well well. In fact, if de information wey person give no reach dem, dem go still ask for more on top. De tax people dem get government support with law sef to ask any contri person wey don ready to put hand inside de VAIDS to bring any information wey dem go need.

For inside dis scheme time, contri person fit to come add join de one wey im don declare if dem see say im get some other proproti wey suppose get tax money on top. But e must add d information as de scheme still dey on.

All d tax wey u don ever pay before naim dem go calculate together take know how u go dey on top tax mata from now.

Lai lai! U no go fit hide do declaration. Evry contri person wey join dis scheme must come out by im sef declare all de money and proproti for im own name or de company name before dem go clear am. But de tax officer no go tell anybody say na wetin u dey owe for tax be dis abi na wetin u get be dis.

Any informate wey u give under dis scheme na secret e go be. Dem don do am well well make e for be like dat. No be de one wey another person go fit come check ur informate anyhow at all except if na under one kain law mata.
