Nigeria To Start Paying Tax For Facebook


Facebook on Thursday reported in an explanation that Nigerians will pay 7.5 percent Value Added Tax (VAT) for an advert from January 1, 2022.

The charge will apply to adverts running on Facebook for business or individual purposes.

As indicated by the assertion, “Because of execution of a value-added tax (VAT) in Nigeria, Facebook is needed to charge VAT on the offer of promotions to publicists, whether or not you’re purchasing advertisements for business or individual purposes.

All sponsors with a business name in Nigeria will be charged an extra 7.5% VAT on publicizing administrations bought starting 1 January 2022.

“On the off chance that you’re enlisted for VAT and give your VAT ID, your VAT ID will appear on your promotions receipts.
