Reps panel summons FIRS boss for allegedly issuing tax permit without payment
The House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts has summoned Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Muhammad Mami, to offer explanation on tax clearance certificate issued to Procter and Gamble (P&G).
The United States-based firm was accused of operating in Nigeria without payment of tax to the Federal Government.
The invitation was sequel to the adoption of a motion moved by (PDP: Adamawa) at an investigative hearing of the committee yesterday in Abuja.
The panel is probing into revenue remittances of the organisation between 2016 and 2018 based on a query raised by the Office of the Auditor General of the Federation.
Nyampa had observed that in the years under review, the turnover of P&G was N42 billion, N41 billion and N48 billion, adding that “there is need for FIRS to come and authenticate the clearance certificates paraded by P&G and explain reasons for the issuance.”
