Nigeria: VAT levy on online purchases

5th July 2019: Nigeria is set to introduce a new Value Added Tax levy on eCommerce.

The Federal Inland Revenue Services of Nigeria has revealed it is planning to levy VAT on online purchases of goods and services via bank payment split payment.

The VAT element will be withheld by the banks at the standard 5% rate and be remitted directly to the government.
