ABSTRACT

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a consumption tax on the value added to a product in the process of production. Like all other indirect taxes, it is a tax that targets the final consumer of goods and services. The main purpose of VAT in Nigeria is to increase government (state and Local) revenue from the non-oil sector thereby reducing the government’s dependence on oil sales and the budget deficits. In this research work my aim is to determine the stabilizing roles of VAT in the Nigerian economy. The study employed multiple regression analysis as a method of study using the ordinary least square (OLS) regression technique in estimation. Result of the analysis revealed that price level is not stimulated by VAT in Nigeria.7TABLE OF CONTENT Title Page - - - - - - - - - - i Approval Page - - - - - - - - - ii Dedication - - - - - - - - - - iii Acknowledgement - - - - - - - - iv Abstract - - - - - - - - - - vi Table of Content - - - - - - - - - vii CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION1.1 Background of the Study - - - - - - - 11.2 Statement of Problem - - - - - - - 31.3 Objective of the Study - - - - - - - 41.4 Statement of Hypothesis - - - - - - - 41.5 Scope of the Study - - - - - - - - 481.6 Significance of the Study - - - - - - - 5CHAPTER TWO: 2.0 Literature Review 2.1 Conceptual Framework - - - - - - - 6 2.2 Inflation Rate - - - - - - - - - 6 2.3 A Review of the Taxation System in Nigeria Historical Review - 8 2.4 Economic Stability in Nigeria - - - - - - - 19 2.5 Theoretical literature -- - - - - - - - 21 2.6 Summary of Literature and Justification of the Study - - - 30 CHAPTER THREE: RESEARCH METHODOLOGY 3.0 Methodology and data - - - - - - - 31 3.1 Methodologies - - - - - - - - 319CHAPTER FOUR: PRESENTATION AND ANALYSIS OF DATA 4.0 Presentation and Discussion of Results -- - - - - 35 CHAPTER FIVE: 5.0 CONCLUSION AND POLICY RECOMMENDATION- - - - - 38 5.1 Conclusion - - - - - - - - - -38 5.2 Recommendations - - - - - - - - -38 Bibliography - - - - - - - - - 4010CHAPTER ONE1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDYThe introduction of value added tax(VAT) in Nigeria came from the report of the study group set up by the federal government in 1991 to review the entire tax system in the set up to carry out feasibility studies on its possible implementation. In January 1993, the federal government agreed to introduce VAT by the middle of the year. But due to some logistic reasons for the relevant legislation to be made and proper ground work done. It was shifted to January 1st 1994. VAT replaced the former existing sales tax carried out by the different state3 governments, the wages first implemented in 1986 and operated under the federal government legislated degree no.7, of 1986. VAT replaced the sales tax because of the following reasons.VAT is neutral in that a considerable part of the new tax is to be realized fr5om imported goods unlike the sales tax that targets only locally produced goods based on the general consumption behavior.11VAT is a consumption tax on all economic operation in the country including imports and has a zero rate for export. The federal Inland Revenue service (FIRS) is the main body charge with the administration of VAT in Nigeria custom service (NCS) for the collection of VAT on imports and the help of VAT on the locally produced goods and services. VAT has a single low rate of 5% with a zero rate for exports and is borne sole by the final consumers of VAT able goods and services like any other indirect tax, some essential goods and services are exempted from VAT that is they are not VAT able The main reasons that led the introduction of VAT are to be referred to as the main gains of VAT and they included.I. Need for increased government revenue due to increased public expenditure.II. Reduction in the over dependence on sales of crude oil with its attendant uncertainties in the international market.III. Making the tax equitable for all the masses by curbing the rice, thereby reducing the gap between the very rich and the very poor.12IV. Reducing the rich’s materialistic tendencies for unnecessary luxury goods.1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMIn terms of contributions the total federal collection revenue, VAT revenue at the time of inception in 1994 was anticipated to be much larger, indicating that Nigeria then may soon join the growing list of developing countries here VAT contributes at least 20% of total government revenue . While the performance of VAT as a source of revenue in sub-Sahara Africa and Nigeria in particular is clearly encouraging, it remains difficult to find attempts to systematically asses the impact of VAT on these economies (Ajakaiye, 1999). Nevertheless, include (1989) opines policy makers considering the adoption of VAT should be interested in the macroeconomic impact, especially on price, output, income and consumption. Economically, one expect the price of VAT able goods to rise, however beyond this expected rise, business are taking advantage of the existence of VAT the increas4e price of goods and services arbitrarily.13The excessive price increase according to Aruwa (2008) has further led to higher inflation in Nigeria. Given the foregoing seeks to asses the macroeconomic impact at VAT on price level in Nigeria.1.3 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDYThe study seeks to examine the following specific objectives.I. To ascertain if any significant relationship exist between VAT and price stability in Nigeria.II. To determine the impact of VAT on price level in Nigeria.
