Link Global Management can provide a full range of payroll services in Nigeria. The individual will be engaged on our payroll and income is paid in the form of salary, allowances and expenses, the proportion of each part depending on individual circumstances.

Salary, Tax & Social Security

Link Global Management deducts tax and social security at source on a PAYE basis, and payments are made to the relevant authorities on the employee's behalf. The taxable amount may be reduced by offsetting certain business expenses. There are different tax rates and bands according to earnings level and marital/family status.

Link Global Management will discuss your personal circumstances with you and help you to minimise your tax and social security liabilities, within the boundaries of Nigerian legislation.

Tax Returns

Income is managed tax efficiently, not just in Nigeria but also in any other country where there may be a liability. A tax return is filed each year in Nigeria with advice and assistance from Link Global Management who will also provide help with filing tax returns elsewhere, if required.

Income tax in Nigeria

Individuals are considered residents if they are in one of the following categories:

  1. Nigerian and non-Nigerian individuals who reside in Nigeria
  2. Expatriate employees of a resident company who are present in Nigeria for employment purposes.
  3. Expatriate employees of a nonresident company who are present in Nigeria for more than 183 days in a 12-month period, if their employment costs are charged to a Nigerian company or borne by a fixed base in Nigeria and if the expatriates are not liable to tax in another country that has entered into a double tax treaty with Nigeria.

Residents are generally subject to tax on their worldwide income. However, foreign earnings derived by Nigerian residents are exempt from tax if the earnings are repatriated into Nigeria in convertible currency through a domiciliary account with an approved Nigerian bank. Income earned by a Nigerian from employment with the Nigerian government is considered Nigerian-source income, even if services are performed abroad. Nonresidents are subject to tax on Nigerian-source income only.
