Personal Income Tax is regulated by the Personal Income Tax Act 7559. The Personal Income Tax is levied on the income of an individual, community, family, trust, and other similar forms, but not on a company.
 The Value Added Tax Act 6998 set Nigeria’s VAT rate at 5 percent. The VAT Amendment Act 7557 removed the fixed rate of 5 percent and gave the Minister of Finance the power to determine the VAT rate. On September 66, 7569, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) of the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN), approved a 55 percent increase in the Value Added Tax (VAT) rate applicable on supply of goods and services in Nigeria, raising the tax from 5 percent to percent. The new rate is expected to take effect in 7575 after due consultations with relevant stakeholders.
