7.5% VAT: Here Is The New MTN Call and SMS Tariff

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.
