Responding to inquiries about the seminar, the Executive Director, Business Development of FCMB, Mrs Bukola Smith, was quoted to have reiterated the commitment of the bank to go the extra mile to empower businesses with relevant technical and financial know-how that would boost their performance and contribution to national development. According to her: “As the dynamics of taxation continues to change in Nigeria, we recognise that many businesses, especially SMEs, in the country are not equipped with the requisite information and knowledge to discharge their responsibilities in this area appropriately.

“It is based on this reality that we decided to organise a seminar on tax matters, which will go a long way towards helping SMEs to understand taxation and the processes involved better.”
