Taxation of Expatriates and Foreign Companies in Nigeria

The increasing waves of globalization, the endless search for greener pastures and the quest for foreign investments, among other factors, have contributed to the mobility of labour across international borders. The enormous business and investment opportunities in Nigeria and the relatively liberal legal framework for free movement of goods and persons have attracted a large number of expatriates including foreign companies to Nigeria. Expatriates and foreign companies are taxable in Nigeria though various incentives and reliefs (including exemptions) abound for them under our tax laws to promote foreign investments. It is important that every company (foreign or Nigerian) having expatriates in its employment understands the fundamentals and dynamics of taxation of expatriates and foreign companies in Nigeria including the available reliefs and exemptions

It is against this background that this seminar is conceived. Our approach shall be interactive and case studies based.
