I was wondering.... This is double taxation. For crying out loud, we have paid for VAT when we buy airtime or data. So why is FG taxing us again on calls and data? We didnt sign for this. angry

How did you know that you paid for VAT when you bought the airtime?

The #4 was initially inclusive of 5% VAT. That means the actual price of SMS was #3.81, while VAT (5%) was #0.19 (19 kobo). Now that VAT is 7.5%, that means that the new VAT is #0.29 (29 kobo), making the total of #4.10 (3.81+29).

Hope you understand now?
thank you bro,na why i love Nairalanders,matter now laid to rest

Im just laughing,the notification of vat deduction that they were not doing when vat was 5%,they are now deducting it at 7.5%.this has nothing to do with the government,the network operators are just rogue.vat should only be applicable to recharge cards.this is double taxation

You guys in Nigeria should try to be using whatsapp calls to reduce cost. Or even using voice messages like here in Dubai most people don't have time typing messages just give the person voice messages the person will reply Vai same.
For your cheap 3 months visa to Dubai pls contact me on +971565974271

You buy N1000 airtime from mama Nkechi shop and you also pay mama Nkechi N1000 you never pay your composary 7.5 VAT, so how will MTN will take pay the 7.5% VAT per transaction to your government?

Who sold the card/PIN to mama Nkechi or merchant that later sold to mama Nkechi ?

Who told you that MTN or other networks have not added Tax, including VAT, cost of production and their Profit to the price they sell to distributors.

This is simple economics. Do you charge a buyer or consumer when he starts using what he buys or you charge when you sell, be it wholesaler, retailer or directly to the consumer.

My brother, if you know how much they pay for VAT annually, you will pity all these mobile network provider.
We should be blaming the FG because we make so much money from our natural resources daily, and I am still confused why they increased VAT.
My brother, the only solution is to wipe out all these men

OK.

The recent paasaage of the finance bill had now been a law and these have also made call rate or tarrif to increase as 7.5% tax is now imposed on every single call being made

One Nigeria.

All of the networks charge the new 7.5% VAT charge. MTN is only transparent about the charges while all of the others are silent about it.

Inside small airtime person dey manage dey buy, VAT dey inside undecided
The gsm operators had always remit VAT @ 5% to the government. This is included in your call tariff unknown to you since you were reluctant to buy airtime at N100 instead of N120

The service operators were only transparent, this has been on for ages but these operators hid it from the masses because they easily react like you are doing now.
