You are only required to pay 7.5% of your net profit when your company turnover 20million naira annually. I think you will be asked to pay a token for your annual audited account if you are not making such turnover.

You are to ensure you deduct all expenses and pay only 7.5% of the profit for the year. It could be lesser depending on how well you can play your game.

You pay 7.5% VAT on supplies which is due in 21 days . You pay 20% for a small company on your profit within 6 months after your accounting year and 30% for a big company

I'm confused now. So apart from the 7.5% tax on profit, there's a 7.5% on vat and another 20% every 6 months. Really it's complicated and will wonder how much will be left for the owner of the company

Small businesses pay an average of 19.8 percent in taxes depending on the type of small business. Small businesses with one owner pay a 13.3 percent tax rate on average and ones with more than one owner pay an average of 23.6 percent. Small business corporations (known as “small corporations”) pay an average of 26.9 percent, according to the Small Business Administration.

Large business. The CIT rate is 30% for large companies (i.e. companies with gross turnover greater than NGN 100 million), assessed on a preceding year basis (i.e. tax is charged on profits for the accounting year ending in the year preceding assessment).

What is your company business?

VAT 7.5% paid on or before 21st of the preceding month

30% company tax at the end of your financial year which shall be done by an auditor

7.5% is on your monthly turnover

Small business. The CIT rate is 0% for small companies (i.e. companies with gross turnover less than 25 NGN million or less), assessed on a preceding year basis (i.e. tax is charged on profits for the accounting year ending in the year preceding assessment).
Medium Business CIT 20% turnover in excess of 25million

No, you don't pay any 7.5% on profit, it is paid to your suppliers quoted on the invoice for goods supplied to you. Thereafter, you pay your normal tax for the year which maybr 20 or 30% on profit depending on size of your company. You will also charge Witholding Tax of 5 or 10% from your suppliers which will deducted from your tax payable for the year. It may be confusing to you, why not let us prepare this for you at a token.

What's the cost of hiring an auditor?
Re: Tax In Nigeria: How Is It Calculated? by alushkimo(m): 8:02am On Jan 10
Since it is a limited liability coy, tax will be assessed on the coy’s profit. The company’s profit will be adjusted by non-deductible expenses for tax purposes and non-taxable income to arrive at taxable income on which CIT is computed. Tax rate now varies based on Coy’s turnover. In this instance, tax will be 0% if he has a turnover of less than 25m.

The 7.5% is VAT which is charged on the supply of goods and services. It’s different from income tax.

The system is not really solid. You can eventually evade tax if you're smart.
