Supermart.ng, Nigeria’s largest online grocery retailer is set to partner with Ijewere & Co., Nigeria’s largest indigenous consulting firm on the organization of a two-day tax seminar for finance professionals titled ‘Company Income Tax Planning, Compliance, Management and Evolving Changes in Tax Environment’.
Holding at the Ijewere & Co. Tax Training Centre at 106/110, Lewis Street, Obalende on 26 and 27 July 2016, the two-day seminar will see all in attendance rewarded with a special gift from Supermart. It has been organized specially for individuals involved in Tax, Finance, Accounting, Audit, Compliance, Investment, and Administration to update their knowledge of Nigeria’s challenging tax environment and get responses to their queries.
Speaking about the upcoming seminar, Co-founder of Supermart Nigeria, Raphael Afaedor said,
“In Nigeria’s growing eCommerce space, the Tech side of things and the new solutions created are generally much more interesting to focus on. As the space Supermart operates in grows and matures, however, I think it is important to create partnerships with companies like Ijewere & Co. to shape how we think about tax in eCommerce. I also think it is important that as the Nigerian eCommerce space enters the next phase of growth, we keep ourselves informed about what our positions and obligations are regarding taxation.”
Areas to be covered during the seminar include filing of tax returns, allowable and disallowable expenses, planning and management of companies’ income tax, tax computation of IFRS-based audited financial statements, offenses and penalties under the Companies Income Tax Act, and general overview of companies income tax and tax environment in Nigeria.
Commenting on the upcoming seminar and the partnership with Supermart, Training Partner, Ijewere & Co, Bankole Lawani said,
“This seminar is essential at this time because of the noticeable increase in tax regulation enforcement by the government nowadays. Apart from giving industry professionals the opportunity to learn important information relevant to the legal and compliance aspect of their work, it also gives them a platform to ask questions and get answers that are not always readily available. We are also excited to partner with Supermart, which is one of a new generation of startup businesses that will be the future of Nigeria’s economy. The information from the seminar will no doubt be very useful to them and to the rapidly growing e-commerce industry which is already becoming a sizeable source of tax revenue for the government.”
