This is absurd. Is the vat not supposed to be upon recharge. Why charge vat on calls.

Glo is even the worst. They charge both for making and receiving calls same rate plus 7. 5% vat.
Nigeria don tire me self!
Glo is silent killer. Only MTN own that people hear most. Stūpid Glo charges 16 naira for four lines per text. Which is 8 Naira for two lines, which is normally 4 naira.

Abi you need to sue FG?
Don't you know that if MTN fails to pass the tax to you, then they will have to bear it instead of you?
FYI all companies are implementing same unless people prevail on FG and they backtrack.

Una never see anything.

Una go suffer well well.

That is what you get for voting a complete idiot into power because of ethnic or religious sentiments.

I even pray the suffering even increase more
More kidnaps, more rapes, more death

So that you fools will learn your lesson once and for all

That ethnic hate is bad
Voting for ethnic reasons is wrong and stupid
and lastly, when voting next time, use your sense.

I remember in 2015 some voted Buhari thinking they are doing Igbos
Some of you are still here on this forum

Now 5 years after
How far? cheesy

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.

Wait ooo.. Is it on every call make or on every airtime bought?

One thing most people fail to realize is that MTN or other brands don’t keep taxes they themselves, they remit them to the government. If there’s anyone who should be questioned here, it’s the government not MTN or others.

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

VAT wasn't imposed on airtime, the service providers tried imposing it but was resisted by Nigerians . VAT is imposed on call charges unknown to you. These service providers deliberately display the charges for you to see in other to boycott it

For every 1 min call you make you pay 0.21k

Michealky:
So if i have 200naira and i make a call worth 100naira I'll be charged me 7.5naira leaving me 92.5 naira, not bad
Depending on your tariff plan. If your tariff is MTN talk more you are charged 12k/sec or N7.20/min to all networks. N100 worth of calls should give you 14 mins while VAT is N2.94(0.21k * 13 minutes). Invariably you pay N102.94 (N100 + N2.94). If you deduct N200 from N102.94 you are left with N97.06.

Is 0.1 Naira now 7.5℅ of 4 Naira?? Abi na me wey no know math again??

Nigerian communication commission

Sms is N3.81 plus 0.29k vat = N4.10 7.5/100*N3.81= 0.29k.
Re: MTN Now Charges 7.5% Vat On Every Call That Is Made by edoairways: 3:01pm On Feb 07
Ladycewhy:
why not take it once ? Evey time you make call they take their VAT and you say it's not double taxation? Well it's not double but multiple taxation cos they get to take it multiple times over and over again.
How many Nigerians are willing to buy N100 airtime for N120?

This government is insensitive, they don't think properly before coming up with policies. The increase in VAT may lead to job loss in some sectors as consumers will be conservative on their spending.
