so lets first start with what export is
Export means shipping the goods and services out of the port of a country. The seller of such goods and services is referred to as an "exporter" and is based in the country of export whereas the overseas based buyer is referred to as an "importer". In international trade, "exports" refers to selling goods and services produced in the home country to other markets.
Export of commercial quantities of goods normally requires involvement of the customs authorities in both the country of export and the country of import
Methods of export include a product or good or information being mailed, hand-delivered, shipped by air, shipped by vessel, uploaded to an internet site, or downloaded from an internet site. Exports also include the distribution of information that can be sent in the form of an email, an email attachment, a fax or can be shared during a telephone conversation.

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPORT BUSINESS
Starting an export business is one of the most profitable business decisions you can make in Nigeria. There are more-than-countable products or commodities that sell for cheap in Nigeria, but go for much higher prices in other countries; where they are even in far higher demand than they are in Nigeria. This leaves huge profit opportunities for those who have the required know-how and can afford the cost of starting an export business in the country.
Though the export business in Nigeria is highly lucrative, it has its own fair share of challenges. And one of the biggest challenges Nigerian exporters face does not fully know the rules and regulations binding the business in Nigeria as well as the legal requirements for starting and running the business. This alone has landed many exporters in serious legal troubles.
To avoid having legal issues as an exporter, you need to know the legal requirements that you must meet before starting out in the Nigerian export industry. These are the requirement
A unique business name
One of the first steps you must take when starting out as an exporter in Nigeria is to register the name of your export business with the Corporate Affairs Commissions. This will add your business to the list of businesses officially recognized by the government. And it’s enough to ensure that someone else does not use your business name for their own business. You must bear in mind, however, that you will not be allowed to register a business name that conflicts with that of another company that is already registered and in existence.
A registered office
As with other businesses, every export business in Nigeria must have a registered office, or at least an ‘office address’. So, the government is interested more in you having an address for your business than having an office structure. This explains why a home address would suffice if you are starting small. Whether it’s a ‘home’ or a real office , the most important thing is that it must have an address.
Registration with the NEXP
The Nigerian Customs Service rules that anyone willing to engage in export business must register with the Nigerian Export Promotion Council. This Council was created to enhance and encourage exportation of commodities other than oil with the ultimate aim of generating national revenue through alternative means. Registering with the Nigerian
Export Promotion Council is now easier than ever. Just visit the Council’s website (www.nepc.gov.ng) and click the ‘Register here’ link on the right sidebar. You will be shown the full details of the procedure and requirements.
Registration of Form NXP
The Nigerian Customs Service also requires that Nigerian exporters complete and register Form NXP with authorized dealers (commercial or merchant banks) of their choice. Your chosen authorized dealer will be in charge of handling your funds and transactions, as you will be required to set up and maintain a Domiciliary Account with them, to which your payments will be deposited.
Special licenses and permits
As with any other business, starting an export business in Nigeria requires obtaining licenses and permits that indicate the government’s approval of your business. There are licenses and permits for doing business in Nigeria. And there are some specifically for operating an export business.
To figure out what licenses and permits you must obtain, you need to conduct extensive research or contact a seasoned business lawyer who has deep knowledge of the Nigerian business environment, more especially of the export business in Nigeria.
Licenses from target foreign country
Virtually all countries require that businesses planning to sell their product or commodities to their citizens must obtain certain licenses and certifications. So, you will need to find out more about the requirements for any country you want to sell your products in.
However, you must bear in mind that obtaining some of these licenses require inspection of the products you intend to sell in the target foreign country. And you will be granted permission to sell them only if they meet certain standards as set by the government of that country.
Additional documents:
Certificate of incorporation (for companies registered as corporations)
Tax certificates
Insurance covers

HOW TO GET TAX CERTIFICATE
Tax clearance certificate is one of the documents necessary for various corporate transactions by both individuals and corporate organisations in Nigeria. To get tax clearance certificate for your company in Nigeria which is usually after the taxpayer has gotten a valid taxpayer’s identification number (TIN) from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS). The process is somewhat thorny cumbersome but achievable. Also, the process of getting tax clearance certificate in Nigeria can be different depending on the dynamics of your organization
Documents Needed For Application of Tax Clearance in Nigeria
1. A copy of Certificate of Incorporation of the company issued by the corporate affairs commission (CAC)
2. Memorandum and Article of Association
3. Name, address of tax adviser; this is your tax consultant
4. Name and address of directors; you can provide this with Form CAC 3, Notice of registered address
5. Personal Tax Clearance Certificate of your MD or any Director in your company
6. Necessary document(s) showing your correct business address
Where to go with these Documents
Having gathered all these required documents, go ahead and visit any Integrated Tax Office and register to obtain your taxpayer identification number
After that What Next?
The next step is the application for tax clearance certificate. Proceed and collect the following: Taxpayer registration input form (TRIF/2006/001 COYS) FIRS questionnaire and Letter of appointment of tax adviser and a letter of acceptance
Completed application form (triplicate) and the questionnaire should be submitted with the original certificate of incorporation to the tax comptroller for perusal.
A tax reference number will be given to the applicant upon acknowledgment of the completed taxpayer registration input form and all required documents
From here you can then file an application for the tax clearance certificate which will be available in due date.
Fees Required for Tax Clearance Certificate in Nigeria
The required fee for collection of tax clearance certificate depends on the dynamics of the company. Also, there are many other considerations and I will like you to read this for clarity. However, there are no fees for newly registered companies before six months of incorporation.

FUNCTION OF THE NIGERIA EXPORT COUNCIL
The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) is the government agency responsible for regulation, promotion, recording and monitoring of export trade in the country. It is the organ which the government uses to implement its export policies and strategies. When you hear about new exportation policies and incentives for exportation given out by the government, The NEPC is usually
in charge of distributing these incentives. The NEPC was established in and has its offices across Nigeria. The NEPC was established as a service unit to offer funding and support to indigenous manufacturing companies and other companies that produce exportable products so that they can get their products into the export market easily. They make it easier for exporters to access the foreign market, identify products that can be exported, understand standardization, specifications and packaging requirements.
The NEPC became even more active under the democratic dispensation. As an exporter, there are several ways through which the NEPC can help and protect your export business. Some of these include-:
1. Provide a list of Exportable Products -: If you are just considering going into export business but you are unsure of what to export; you can visit the NEPC’s website. There, you would find a long list of products that you can export and the countries you can export to. If you have an existing business, you can also find out where you can start exporting your products to through the NEPC. There are also materials that you could download on their website or materials you could picks up from their office that sheds more light on this.
2. The NEPC also provides technical support to exporters in the following areas-:
Ensure proper documentation of export transactions -: Proper documentation is very important in exportation because it shows proof and provides a legal basis for transactions. The NEPC would let you know which documents you need, how to get them, the need for those documents as well as the places to send the documents to.
Business Registration -: Before you can carry out exportation business; you have to register with the NEPC. This registration is beneficial for you because the NEPC maintains a database of all Nigerian exporters that overseas buyers can use to find legitimate suppliers. That opens ups another avenue for buyers to reach you and buy products from you.
Quality and Standards -: The NEPC also monitors the quality and standards of products goings out to ensure that they are of high quality. Payment -: The agency also helps you suggest the best and most secure payment methods.
3. Organize Trade Fairs and Exhibitions-: The NEPC also helps to organize and facilitate the participation of Nigerians in international trade fairs and exhibition events. If you are registered with the NEPC and have a solid or innovative product; the NEPC can facilitate your participation in trade fairs and exhibition programs.
4. Bring Exporters together-: The NEPC also creates an avenue for exporters to come together under one umbrella to relate and discuss issues related to export promotion and development. It makes it easier for exporters to network with one another.
5. Provides information on product sourcing -: If you are unsure of where to get particular products for export, you can ask the NEPC for help. They would be able to give you information on where to find the products you are looking for in Nigeria.
6. Administer Grants and Incentives -: If you are registered with the NEPC, then you can easily access some of the grants and incentives that the government doles out regularly to help exporters in the country. Exporters of agricultural products receive a lot of incentives from the government regularly.
7. Help to simplify the export procedure -: If you are new into exportation, it’s easy to get confused and misunderstand the procedure; a visit to the office of the NEPC would help to enlighten you and put things in perspective. The NEPC can assist you such that you don’t have to go through some so-called ‘export gurus’ who charge you thousands just to train you on how to start an exportation business.
8. Carry out research and studies-: The NEPC also carries out regular studies and research into matters concerning exporters and factors that may affect/influence exportation in Nigeria. As an exporter, you can benefit greatly from such research and studies.
9. Help to solve problems-: If at any point in your export business you encounter some challenges or problems; the NEPC is your go-to agency for complaints and solutions to your challenges. If you want to find out if a company/overseas buyer is legitimate or not; you can contact the NEPC who would help you investigate through the buying country’s embassy.
10. Create awareness and publicity-: The NEPC also does a lot of local and international advertisements and promotions which is also directly beneficial to you as an exporter.
11. Provide Financial Support-: Lastly, you can get financial support through the NEPC; although the NEPC might not be able to give you direct loans, they can provide useful information on where to get loans easily for your export business. They may also be able to guarantee a loan for you.

Presently the world footwear and leather products sector is moving from high-cost industrialized countries to developing countries and many developing countries (Nigeria inclusive) have strong potentials in this sector regarding raw material and human resources, but have mainly remained suppliers of raw and semi-finished products. The raw materials for leather and its products are mainly from livestock, and Nigeria is endowed with the third largest livestock population in Africa.
Palm Kernel Cake

Palm kernel cake ( PKC) as a by-product in the milling of palm kernel oil. Palm kernel cake is considered a medium grade protein in feed, containing 14.6% to 16.0% crude protein, useful for fattening cattle either as a single feed, with only minerals and vitamins supplementation or mixed with other feedstuff.

HOW TO AVOID BEING SCAMMED IN EXPORTATION
If you are already in the Nigerian exportation industry or conversant with the happenings therein, then it’s no news that people get scammed and ripped off of their hard earned money sometimes. You advertise your export products on the internet, a supposed manufacturer or agent contacts you showing interest in your goods, you enter into a contract with them and fulfill your own end of the bargain but when it’s time for them to fulfill theirs, they disappear into thin air.
It’s a very terrible situation to find one’s self in. Some of the scammers are even so organized that they provide you with a letter of credit only for you to find out at the end of the day that it was all a fluke. As a new or regular exporter, it is important to find out ways of protecting yourself and your business from fraudulent overseas buyers
1. Do a Background Check -: Don’t get too excited when you get a sales offer. You must first take time to do a background check on the company and find out whether it’s a legit company or not. You can ask for help from the embassy where the buyers company is based in. For instance, if it’s a Chinese company, the Chinese embassy in Nigeria should be able to confirm whether or not the company is legitimate. If it’s an individual buyer and not a company, the embassy can also help you investigate the person through the country’s citizen’s database. You can also conduct a background check through internet search engines.
2. Check the Company’s Website-: Almost every company has a website these days especially if it’s a large company hence, you can ask for the company’s website to confirm some of the details about the company that you have already been given. Some small companies may not have a website but they would at least have a registered office, phone number and a business license. You should ask for this information from them and investigate to know whether it’s a company that is licensed to do business in the said country.
3. Watch Out for the E-mail Address -: When you see e-mails from personal addresses, you should be very careful with dealing with such people. A serious company would have a business website e- mail address that would be used in contacting suppliers; when you get supposed company e- mails from personal e-mail addresses like @yahoo.com or @hotmail.com; your scam alert should be very high at this point. To find out if an e- mail address is from a company webmail or a personal address, copy the letters after the ‘@’ sign and use your search engine to find out.
4. Use an agent -: There are a lot of companies that provide agency services to exporters. They would help you arrange a meeting with the buyer and investigate the business to determine if it is a legitimate business or otherwise. Although this might raise the cost of your business a little bit, you would wish you had taken that step if you fall into a scam trap. You may also use family members or friends that stay in the country the buyer is from or if you can afford it, arrange a trip to the said country to see things for yourself. This is something you should really consider especially if it’s a large order.
5. Investigate Scam Reports-: If it’s a potential scam, it’s possible that you are not the first person the buyer has tried to rip off. It’s most likely that they would have done it to a couple of people before contacting you. This is why it would help to investigate scam reports against a company or person you are planning to do business with. Again, the internet would be of help; copy the company or buyers name and the word ‘scam’ and then paste it in your search engine; it would pull up any previous scam reports filed against the company in the past.
For instance, if the name of the company is ‘cupcake limited’; you would post the words ‘cupcake limited scam’ in your search engine to see if it would bring up any scam reports about the company. You can also do the same for an e-mail address or a business website.
6. Use E-mail Backtracker -: You can find out the buyer’s real identity as well as his IP address using e-mail backtracker. You see, when it comes to protecting your business from scam, no step is too much to take because scammers also spare no costs or energy to pull a perfect job. Therefore, you must always bring in your ‘A’ game whenever you are considering doing business with an overseas buyer; take as many steps as is necessary to ensure that your investments are safe. A popular website that offers this kind of backtracking service is abika.com .
7. Ask for all the information you need -: You should try to ask as many questions as you feel would be necessary to help you form an opinion. Don’t be scared to ask the buyer questions. If he has nothing to hide and represents a legitimate company, he wouldn’t have any problem giving you all the information you need.
8. Use Government Trade Sites-: Trading on government established trade sites is also a good way to protect you because illegitimate companies and buyers know better than to bring their tricks on a government website.
