Multichoice, owner of the satellite television, DSTV, a popular subscription-based platform in Nigeria have reacted to the story making the round over N1.8trillion tax fraud, and move to freeze the company accounts.
The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has earlier accused MultiChoice Nigeria Limited and MultiChoice Africa of been indebted to the Federal Government of Nigeria to the tune of N1.8trillion.
But, in a reaction, the company maintains its readiness to prove tax compliance if and when needed.
“We have read the media reports and the statements made by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
“MultiChoice Nigeria has not received any notification from FIRS. MultiChoice Nigeria respects and is comfortable that it complies with the tax laws of Nigeria.
“We have been and are currently in discussion with FIRS regarding their concerns and believe that we will be able to resolve the matter amicably,” the statement read.
