Question

Tolu wants to know if SwissGolden is a ponzi scheme

Answer

There is a red flag on the product because it is focused on recruitment, which makes it multi level marketing. Multi level marketing schemes often tend towards ponzis. Any business that depends on recruitments is not sustainable.

Question

Mofe wants to know the steps in registering a NGO and the benefits of having one

Answer

Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are companies limited by guarantee and don’t pay tax. To set up an NGO, one has to meet registration requirements by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), which includes a publication in a newspaper stating one’s intention. The process could take a month or two. Example of an NGO is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Question

Zuby wants an explanation about the voluntary tax contribution and why the Lagos State Government is against it.

Answer

Every month a percentage of your salary goes to your pension contribution. You can opt to save a bigger part of it and then withdraw it later. Some people take advantage of the loophole as the additional contribution made is not taxed. The Lagos State Government however wants withdrawals from your pension contribution above the maximum taxed.
