The total revenue available in January 2024 amounted to a robust ₦2.068 trillion, with deductions totaling ₦918.338 billion for collection costs, transfers, interventions, refunds, and savings.


According to a communique issued by FAAC, the ₦1,149.816 billion total distributable revenue comprised distributable statutory revenue of N463.079 billion, distributable Value Added Tax (VAT) revenue of ₦391.787 billion, Electronic Money Transfer Levy (EMTL) revenue of ₦15.922 billion, and Exchange Difference revenue of ₦279.028 billion.

Tax Landscape Insights

The tax landscape in January 2024 witnessed significant rises in Companies Income Tax (CIT), Import Duty, Petroleum Profit Tax (PPT), and Oil and Gas Royalties. However, VAT, Export Duty, EMTL, and CET Levies experienced considerable declines. This mixed performance underscores the evolving nature of Nigeria’s revenue generation capabilities and the influence of global and local economic dynamics on tax collections.

Meanwhile, the balance in the Excess Crude Account (ECA) remained steady at $473,754.57, providing stability in the midst of changing revenue patterns.
