Understanding Pay As You Earn Taxes (PAYE) in Nigeria


All Employers in Nigeria are responsible for deducting PAYE (Pay As You Earn) taxes and from their employees' pay. Taxes deducted are required to be remitted to the appropriate tax office by the 10th day of the month following the deduction. PAYE Taxes are calculated as follows:

  • report this information to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) each time you pay an employee.

  • You must also give your employees a pay statement and maintain adequate records of how much has been paid and any deductions made.

  • Read further guidance on new employer - getting started on the HMRC website.

If you haven't yet registered as an employer you can find out more in our guide how to register as an employer here.
