    FIRS Takes Tax Clearance Certificate Online

    The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has said that taxpayers can now obtain their Tax Clearance Certificate in a single click through its flagship taxpro max solution.

    The solution which is a tax administration module introduced by the apex tax authority in June 2021 is a one-stop-shop for taxpayer registration, tax returns filing, tax payment, tax clearance certificate requesting, among other functionalities.

    A statement signed by Mr. Johannes Wojuola, Special Assistant to the Executive Chairman, FIRS (Media & Communication), yesterday, said the generation of Tax Clearance Certificates, which used to be issued within a period of two weeks would now be available on a single click by the taxpayer.

    This innovation is coming on the heels of wide-scale technological reforms that the Service has embarked on in its bid to achieve hundred percent automation of its tax administration functions.

    Commenting on this development, the Executive Chairman of the FIRS, Mr. Muhammad Nami, explained that this functionality was in line with the objectives of the Service to make the lives of taxpayers easier and ensure the ease of doing business in the country.

    “One of our objectives as a Service is to build a Customer-Centric institution,” he stated.

    “That means an institution that has the customer at the heart of its innovations and solutions. It is for this reason that we have tuned the operations of our TaxPro Max solution to be able to deliver Tax Clearance Certificates in the shortest possible time to taxpayers.

    “At the click of a button, a taxpayer will get their Tax Clearance Certificates, as long as they have no outstanding liabilities.

    “This would impact in no small measure on the Ease of Doing Business in Nigeria,” Nami stated.

    Explaining further the FIRS boss stated that the taxpayer could only generate their Tax Clearance Certificates on the TaxPro Max platform when they did not owe any liabilities among other conditions set out for use of the platform.
