Multiple Taxation: Telecom association urges review of Amended Tax Order of 2015

By Aliyu DANLADI

The Association of Licensed Telecommunication Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) has urged the Federal Government to review the Amended Tax Order of 2015 to reduce multiple taxation.

TBI Africa said that the Secretary of ALTON, Mr Gbolahan Awonuga, made the call in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)
on Tuesday in Abuja.

The administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, acting through the then Minister of Finance and Coordinating
Minister of the Economy, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, had on May 26, 2015, amended the Taxes and Levies (Approved List for
Collection) Act, Cap. T2, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

The ALTON scribe, however, said that there was need to review the order, adding that “the tax order was amended and
signed by the former Minister of Finance, Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala because it created more problems and confusion.

“However, ALTON is seeking another review and we are planning to send it to the National Economic Council for consideration.”

Awonuga said that the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) had taken steps to address the issue of
multiple taxation and had been having stakeholders’ meetings and discussing with states on how to put a stop to the issue.

He added that “ALTON had been relating with states to end the problem of multiple taxation.
The association was also relating with necessary agencies of government to move the telecom sector forward in 2019.

“We are also working with players in the telecom sector and the financial sector by way of financial inclusion so as to take
financial institutions to the grassroots.

“Those are part of what we are going to do and also try to ensure that online fraud is drastically reduced. We are looking
forward to do all these this year.”
