The Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS) has sealed the headquarters of Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company (Kaduna Electric) over tax liabilities of N464.1 million.
This was disclosed by the agency’s Board Secretary and Legal Adviser, Mrs Aisha Mohammed, on Wednesday, adding that apart from withholding tax, Kaduna Electric has been deducting Pay-as-You-Earn (PAYE) from staff but fails to remit to the state government as required by the law.
The authorities added that the service had sent seven notices to Kaduna Electric, demanding the settlement of the liability to no avail.
“We have been discussing with the management of the company since 2019 to pay the outstanding liability, but they refused, as such, we had no option but to seal off the offices,” she said.
“The headquarters and other sealed offices will remain close until the N464.5 million tax liability is settled,” she explained.
On his part, Mr Ado Garba, the agency’s head of enforcement, said KADIRS sent seven notices to Kaduna Electric, demanding the settlement of the liability with no response from the company.
The government agency said the facility has been sealed in line with the State Tax Codification and Consolidation Law, 2020.
“This, therefore, left us with no option than to obtain a warrant of authority from the court to seal off the offices,” he said.
“This is in line with Section 104(1) and (4) of the personal income tax amendment act 2011 and section 37 subsection (3) and (4) of the Kaduna state tax codification and consolidation law, 2020.”
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
