TBCA Will Be At CapitalSquare To Tell You All You Need To Know About VAIDS


 The TBCA VAIDS tour will be at CapitalSquare Lekki and CapitalSquare Ikoyi on the 2nd and 5th of March respectively, to provide information and answer any questions you may have about the VAIDS scheme.

VAIDS is the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme created by the Federal Government to allow tax defaulters regularize their tax status relating to previous tax periods.

You'll learn about VAIDS and most importantly ensure that as an Individual, Startup or SME, you are not at risk of defaulting. If you are in Lagos, join TBCA on the 2nd of March at CapitalSquare Lekki, and on the 5th of March at CapitalSquare Ikoyi for an information session on VAIDS.

As part of the tour, TBCA will also host two Webinar sessions (on March 6th and 12th)  and a Livestream interview with a TAX Professional. You can join the Webinar Sessions here: Join Zoom using Meeting ID: 880 770 6600. Follow all Livestreams of the tour on both Instagram (@tbcaco) and Facebook (@tbcaco).
