The Anambra State Internal Revenue Service (AiRS), has warned employers of labours in the state not remitting Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) deductions made from their workers salaries to quickly remit them or face the wrath of law.
AiRS in a release signed by its Deputy and Head of Tax Payer Education and Enlightenment team, Mrs. Sylvia Tochukwu Ngige, said it would from October 1, 2019 kick-start enforcement for non-remittance of PAYE in line with provisions of personal income Tax Act 2011 and PAYE Scheme regulations of 2012.
The revenue agency, while directing employers of labour to deduct and remit all PAYE arrears before the stated day, charged them on monthly visitation to their headquarters in Awka on monthly basis with evidence of PAYE remittance and a schedule or list of their employees, showing their salaries and tax paid.
“We are also reminding employers that ANNSID registration is compulsory for their company and their employees. Any employer that fails to comply with the directives commits an offence which attracts penalties. Anambra state government will not hesitate to use the full force of law to recover any debt owed the state,” it said.
