In a statement yesterday by the Special Assistant to the Executive Chairman, FIRS, Muhammed Nami, on (Media & Communication), Johannes Oluwatobi Wojuola, said generation of the certificates, which used to be issued within a period of 2 weeks will now be available on a single click by the taxpayer.

Nami noted that the new mode of certificate generation was in line with the objectives of the service to make the lives of taxpayers easier and ensure the ease of doing business in the country.

“It is for this reason that we have tuned the operations of our TaxPro Max solution to be able to deliver tax clearance certificates in the shortest possible time to taxpayers as long as they do not have any liabilities. At the click of a button, a taxpayer will get their tax clearance certificates, as long as they have no outstanding liabilities,” he said.
