After the applicable taxes has been deducted from the employee's salary via the PAYE system, it is the employer's obligation to remit such funds to the revenue office by the 10th of the following month.  An individual is not required to file a tax return if his/her employment income is below NGN 30 000 per year. 

Taxable Income


The following categories of revenues and capital gains are subject to individual income tax, each taxable under separate rates: 

  1. Salary revenues

  2. Professional revenues

  3. Real estate revenue and capital gains 

  4. Revenues derived from agricultural farms 

  5. Revenue and capital gains on financial instruments.  

Nigeria uses the PAYE (Pay As You Earn) system to process income tax payable to the State Internal Revenue Service (SIRS) .  Nigerian tax residents are taxed on their worldwide income while non-residents are only taxed on their income sources within Nigeria. 

Exempt Income

Any foreign sourced income of residents that arises from interest, rents, royalties, dividends, fees and commission will be exempted from tax on the condition that the funds are brought into Nigeria in a convertible currency and paid into a domiciliary bank account approved by the government.  A similar requirement is applicable to athletes, authors, professional artists, musicians and play-writers for any income sources outside of Nigeria.
