The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has accused the Integrated Logistics Services (Intels) of defaulting in tax payment.
This comes one week after the Nigerian Port Authority (NPA), terminated its pilotage agreement with the company co-founded by former Vice-president, Atiku Abubakar.
“FIRS did not carry out any enforcement on Intels. Our team only pasted a non-compliance sticker on the premises of the company,” the official said.
“Such stickers are always pasted on the premises of companies that have not been complying with the company’s tax obligations – value-added tax Act Cap VI, and companies income tax, CIT Cap C21, laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2014 and other tax laws.
“The non-compliance stickers are routine.We did not seal nor close the company. Intels is free to carry out its operations. It is not a distrain sticker.”
