The Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) has queried revenue shortfall of about N26.7 billion cby the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS). The amount is in variance to the balance in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN’s) coffers. The difference in the figure spread across revenue channels under the purview of FIRS. These include the Petroleum Profit Tax (PPT), Value Added Tax (VAT) and Company Income Tax (CIT).
The difference in figure remitted to the federation account was traced between December 2018 and January 2019.
Piqued by the difference in FIRS revenue record and the balance in the federation account with the Central Bank, FAAC mandated CBN and FIRS to meet and reconcile the figure . The development, New Telegraph learnt, was intensely discussed by FAAC members at the last meeting. A subcommittee was raised with a mandate to look at it and revert to FAAC with its findings. “The sub-committee observed that FIRS reported N billion as total PPT and VAT collections in January 2019 while CBN’s component statement indicated N billion, thus showing a shortfall of N90.88 million. “In the same disposition, FIRS reported N billion as total PPT and CIT collections for December 2018 federation account, while CBN component statement indicated N billion, revealing shortfall of N26.61 billion,” FAAC document noted. This was as FAAC confirmed payment and receipt of $40.7 million by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation/Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NNPC/NPDC) in January 2019, thus ending a protracted drag in respect of crude oil allocation. A presentation by FAAC sub-committee to the Forum noted that: “Members may recall that NNPC/NPDC made a commitment to use a combination of cash payments and direct monthly allocation of crude cargo to offset the outstanding of $1.74 billion SPDC goods and valuable consideration indebtedness to the federation account. “Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has confirmed the receipt of $40.7 million from January 2019 crude oil allocation of barrels for that purpose.
