    Kaduna IRS meets 90% mid-year revenue collection target – Official

    By Philippe Yataï

    The Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS) has reached 90 percent of its mid-year target of N60 billion.

    Its executive chairman, Dr Zaid Abubakar, told Kaduna on Saturday during a one-day mid-year strategic retreat to review his performance over the past six months.

    Abubakar said he was uncomfortable with the 90 percent mid-year performance, even when it translated to around 50 percent of the 2021 target.

    “This is why we are reviewing our performance to see how we can close the gap to allow us to meet more than 100% of the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) target for the year.

    “We really need to take stock of our capabilities, the available resources and how close we are to achieving the goal we have set for ourselves.

    “The retreat will therefore allow us to review our successes, our challenges, share our experiences and learn from each other on what we need to do to achieve better results,” he said.

    He noted that Kaduna State wished to be dependent on IGR by generating higher income than what it received from the Federation account.

    This, according to him, will allow the state to break out of the traditional dependence on the statutory allowance, noting however that it will not be an easy task.

    He said the state currently has around 500,000 taxpayers, digitally enrolled in its taxpayer network.

    Abubakar said the tax service plan should have at least one million taxpayers in the database by the end of the year.

    “We are already implementing initiatives to achieve this, including the“ One taxpayer, five taxpayers per week ”initiative which should massively broaden the taxpayers' net.

    “This in turn will bring more revenue to the state,” he noted.

    The boss of KADIRS also noted that some of the tax offices had already reached a level above their target for the year.

    He said such an exceptional performance should be encouraged.

    Abubakar pledged a personal reward of N 500,000 for any tax or revenue officer in the region who doubled his target. (NAN)

    Kaduna revenue agency shuts 4 unregistered gaming offices

    By Philippe Yataï

    The Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS) has closed four illegally operating gambling bureaus in the state, said its executive chairman, Dr Zaid Abubakar.

    Abubakar, who made this known in an interview with the Nigerian News Agency (NAN) in Kaduna on Sunday, warned that all illegal gambling bureaus operating in the state would be closed.

    He listed the offices closed by the revenue agency as Star, Dynamic, Champion and Sa'a Special Pool.

    The crackdown on illegal operators will continue until all unregistered gaming operators are drafted, he added.

    Abubakar explained that the government was not against the activities of gaming companies in the state, stressing that "all that was needed was for the companies to operate legally."

    According to him, companies must register, obtain licenses and pay all taxes owed to the state, as specified in the state tax law.

    “The Kaduna State Tax Codification and Consolidation Law, 2020, as amended, requires gaming companies to register and obtain a license before operating in the state.

    “Article 86 of the law required that any gaming company wishing to operate in the State, upon payment of a non-refundable registration fee of N 400,000, apply in writing for an operating license.

    “Section 91 also imposed a 10% tax on each wager and the amount of winnings which should be promptly deducted and paid monthly to KADIRS by each licensed state gambling company.

    "It is therefore in the best interests of the gaming companies to come to KADIRS and properly register their companies and obtain an operating license," said the president.

    NAN recalls that KADIRS began in September 2020 the closure of all gaming companies operating illegally in the State and for withholding taxes.

    The head of games at KADIRS, Mr. Liye Anthony, had told NAN that 52 gaming offices have been closed, with 48 offices completely closed as of September 2020.

    “We will continue to prosecute all unregistered gaming bureaus until they legalize their operations in Kaduna state,” Anthony said. (NAA)

    Kaduna IRS seals 40 bet9ja offices, 8 others in 7 days

    The Kaduna Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS), has so far,  shut down 40 bet9ja offices in the last seven days, in its ongoing operation to close all unregistered gaming offices in the state.

    Mr Liye Anthony, Head of Gaming in the agency, who made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday, added that eight others were also closed within the period.

    Anthony said that five King Bet, two Access Bet offices and one office of Derby Lotto were also closed, amounting to 48 offices closed so far within the period.

    NAN reports that KADIRS  on Sept. 10 commenced shutting down of all gaming companies operating illegally in the state and for withholding taxes.

    The head of gaming said that 38 of the gaming offices were closed in Kaduna metropolis, while 10 offices were sealed in Zaria.

    He said that the operation would be extended to Kafanchan within the week, adding that the revenue agency was awaiting court injunction to go after other gaming companies.

    “The exercise will continue until we seal the about 1,500 gaming offices across the state.

    “It is therefore in the best interests of the gaming operators to come to KADIRS and duly register their companies and obtain license to reopen,” Anthony said.

    Dr Zaid Abubakar, Executive Chairman, KADIRS, had explained at the commencement of the operation, that apart from operating illegally, the gaming companies were owing tax liabilities close to N500 million.

    Abubakar said that the gaming companies were mopping about N2.0 billion monthly from the state and were not paying a kobo to the state government as tax.

    He also said that the operators of the gaming companies were equally required by law to integrate their operations into the KADIRS Service Software, stressing that the companies failed to do so.

    “We will continue to go after them until all the operators of the gaming companies regularise their operations and obtain the needed licenses to operate in the state,” he said.

    Mr Samuel Akins, a Business Development Consultant to the agency, said that gaming operators generated an estimated one trillion naira annually in the country.

    Akins said that in Kaduna state, the operators generated more than N24 billion annually without remitting any tax to the state.

    NAN recalls that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had recently placed the accounts of some gaming companies in the country under post-no-debit (PND) for alleged unauthorised foreign exchange transfer and economic sabotage.

    Tax: Kaduna revenue service seals-off bet9ja, bet king, others

    The Kaduna Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS) on Thursday, sealed off some offices of gaming companies over alleged withholding tax and operating illegally in the state.

    The News Agency of Nigeria, reports that the companies are K. C. Gaming Networks Ltd. owners of bet9ja; Bet King; Access Bet; and Derby Lotto.

    The Executive Chairman of the agency, Dr Zaid Abubakar, told newsmen after the enforcement exercise, that the companies did not register with the agency and were not licensed to operate in the state.

    Abubakar added that the companies were also withholding taxes close to N500 million: K.C Gaming Networks N325 million, Bet King N68 million and Access bet N33 million.

    He also said that the operators of the gaming companies were required by law to integrate their operations into the KADIRS Service Software, but failed to do so.

    According to him, closing the offices was to enforce compliance with provisions of the law and strengthen revenue collection mechanisms in the state.

    He explained that the Kaduna State Tax Codification and Consolidation Law, 2020, as amended, has mandated gaming companies to register and obtain license before they operate in the state.

    “Section 86 of the law mandated that any gaming company wishing to operate in the state shall upon payment of non-refundable N400,000 registration fee, apply in writing for an operating license.

    “We have sent series of letters to the owners of the companies, asking them to come forward and register in line with the requirements of the law, but failed to do so.

    “We, therefore, decided to close down their offices and if they fail to come forward and regularised their operation within the next 14 days, we will prosecute them in accordance with the law,” he said.

    One of the offices of Bet King sealed off by officials of the Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service in Kaduna on Thursday.

    On withholding taxes, the executive chairman, said that the gaming companies were mopping about N2 billion monthly from the state and were not paying a kobo to the state government as tax.

    “This is about revenue, which is the life-line of any government. Without revenue, government will not be able to carry out its responsibilities.

    “Therefore, a gaming company will only be allowed to operate if it is registered, which can be done online, obtain a license to operate subject to annual renewal, and pay all the expected tax due to the state,” he added.

    Earlier, Malam Ado Garba, Head of Enforcement, KADIRS, who led the operation, said that the agency would shut down all gaming offices in the state operating illegally.

    “We have filed for a Distrain Order from the court and we will go after all gaming companies operating illegally and withholding taxes,” Garba said.

    On her part, the agency’s Secretary and Legal Adviser, Aysha Mohammed, said that all the affected companies would be prosecuted in accordance with the law, if they failed to do the needful.

    “We will prosecute them accordingly if they fail to come forward and fulfill the requirement of the law, including a N50,000 to N10 million penalty on each day that the affected companies defaulted.

    “We are awaiting court order on other companies and we will go after them as soon as the orders are ready so that no gaming company will operate illegally in the state.”

    Similarly, Mr Samuel Akins, a Business Development Consultant to the agency, said that gaming operators generate an estimated one trillion naira annually in the country.

    Akins said that in Kaduna state, the operators generate more than N24 billion annually without remitting any tax to the state.

    “Recently, the Central Bank of Nigeria has closed down the bank accounts of some of the gaming companies because they are mopping up forex with the money generated from the states.

    “In fact, in less than a year, one of the companies mopped up over 400 million dollars from the forex market and shipped the money out of the country,” he said.

    Kaduna State Govt. audits private health establishments

    Auditing

    The Kaduna State Government has embarked on audit of over 4,000 private health establishments to ascertain their legality and tax compliance.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that a joint taskforce comprising officials of the Kaduna State Internal Revenue Services (KADIRS) and Ministry of Health was inaugurated to carry out the exercise.

    The Executive Chairman of KADIRS, Dr Zaid Abubakar, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Kaduna on Friday that the joint taskforce was part of efforts to ensure that all private health establishments in the state were duly registered and pay taxes due to the state.

    He said “KADIRS will ensure that all the establishments pay the necessary tax, while the ministry of health verifies their records to ensure they are duly registered and comply with operational guidelines.

    “Those that are registered and comply with operational guidelines and pay their taxes will be allowed to continue operations, but those that are found wanting will be closed down.

    “I, therefore, advise all private health facilities, including other businesses that have not been paying their taxes to come forward, register and pay.

    “If they fail to do so, we will go after them, shut them down and prosecute them where necessary.”

    Mr Ado Garba, the Head of Enforcement, KADIRS, said that the facilities were being assessed based on the provisions of the state tax laws and operational guidelines of the ministry of health.

    Garba told NAN that so far, seven private health establishments have been shut down: three in Kaduna North Local Government Area and four in Chikun Local Government Area.

    According to him, no private health facility will be allowed to operate in the state without paying all necessary taxes and complying with the operational guidelines set by the ministry of health.

    “In fact, those defaulting in payment of taxes within the stipulated time will be made to pay all taxes due to the state, including extra charges for defaulting.”

    Dr Ado Zakari-Mohammed, the Director, Medical Services, Ministry of Health, listed the private health establishments to include hospitals, clinics, laboratories and ultrasound centres.

    Zakari-Mohammed said that the operation would strengthen the regulation and supervision of private health facilities by the Private Health Establishment Committee.

    “We want to ensure that the facilities are fit to operate, located in good environment and have the required manpower, equipment, and offer quality services.

    “We have been witnessing an upsurge in the proliferation of illegal and substandard private health facilities by untrained health officers posing as medical doctors, particularly in rural communities.

    “In some cases, some trained nurses will register a clinic to provide outpatient clinical services but will quietly begin admitting patients and even conduct surgery without authorisation, thereby endangering people’s lives.

    “This operation will help sanitise the sector. If you have no business running a health centre, or operating below minimum standard, we will close the facility and prosecute you if necessary,” he said.
