Lagos shuts down hotels for tax default

The Director of Legal Services of the Lagos Internal Revenue Services  (LIRS),  Seyi Alade, has said that some hotels had been shut down for tax default.
Alade said the affected firms owed the state government a total of N295.49 million, adding that the state had started full enforcement of all aspects of tax laws on tax defaulters.
He named some of the shut facilities as Bienvenue Suite Ltd., Ajaxbel Hotel, Mayor Hotel, Lafun Suites, Darahamson Guest Palace, Mozarella Hotels, among others.
According to him, sealing of hotels and other facilities would be eradicated, due to the coming into operation of the Hotel Occupancy and Restaurant Consumption (Fiscalisation) Regulation, 2017.
He said the new regulations had made it mandatory for all hotels, restaurants, event centres and other entities liable to consumption taxes, to allow integration of the Electronic Revenue Assurance system (ERA).
