The Federal Government has said it is hopeful of having the revenue authorities in Nigeria and that of Niger Republic work together to improve the revenue generation capacity of both countries.
Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Muhammad Nami, disclosed this on Wednesday when he received his Niger Republic counterpart, the Director-General of the Niger Tax Authority, Mallam Ousmane Mahamane and his delegation at the headquarters of the FIRS in Abuja.
Nami said there is a need for the revenue authorities of both countries to work together to deepen their relationship, share tax information and engage in mutual administrative assistance.
Recognising the long-standing relationship and shared culture and languages of the two countries, Nami noted that it was important for the FIRS to work with the Niger Tax Authority.
The FIRS executive chairman also highlighted the working relationship enjoyed by the service and the Niger Tax Authority in the past, particularly on the community rule on double taxation and transfer pricing.
