It’s no longer news the Nigerian mobile operators have started charging their subscribers high in terms of tariff due to the newly introduced 7.5% VAT by the Nigerian government. This simply means that sending SMS or making calls now attracts the new 7.5% VAT. However, this is only applicable to subscribers on Pulse and mPulse tariff plans for now.

As earlier stated, this is as a result of the federal government imposing income withholding tax on foreign companies for professional and consulting services provided to Nigerians.
