FIRS, Firm Partner To Simplify Tax Remittances
No further simplify tax remittances, SystemSpecs has collaborated with the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
This deal is also aimed at strengthening tax administration through its Remita Payment Gateway, which powers payments on TaxPro-Max, a new solution for filing tax returns.
The platform for private sector and government payments has been integrated with the e-filling platform to automate tax filing, enable easy registration, ease tax payments as well as provide a single-view of transaction records.
Tax Payers can register online or through a visit to the FIRS tax office to get on boarded on TaxPro Max.
The deal is expected to promote digitalisation of tax administration in Nigeria. Divisional Head, Business Development, SystemSpecs, Abayomi Oniku, noted that in fulfilling the organisation’s brand promise, the Remita Payment Gateway will continue to meet the needs of individuals, businesses and governments.
“In furtherance of our support for various sectors of the Nigerian economy, we have now also advanced our brand proposition to ensure that tax payment is faster, more convenient and efficient. Our latest partnership with the FIRS is geared towards helping individuals, corporate organisations and government agencies enjoy a convenient process of paying their taxes, anywhere and at any time to facilitate compliance.”
Oniku added that one of the benefits of paying taxes with Remita, on TaxPro-Max, is the availability of multiple payment channels, including internet banking, card, transfer, USSD and if preferred, payers can also walk into a bank branch for their tax payments.
Tax payers are expected to log on to the TaxPro-Max website, and click on the Remita logo to generate the Document Identification Number (DIN/RRR), and effect payment, using the most convenient of available Remita payment channels. For government agencies, they would complete the transaction using their existing Remita profile.
The platform was developed to facilitate easy registration, filing, payment of taxes and enable the automated credit of withholding tax as well as other credits to the taxpayer’s account, among other features. The platform also avails taxpayers a single view for all transactions.
