Tax Troubles in Lagos and Beyond

For anyone who has attempted remitting taxes of any kind in Nigeria, it’s clear that challenges abound.

So, the journey of team TaxPal began with a simple observation: the process of paying taxes could be significantly streamlined and automated. 

“It was clear that there had to be a better way,” the product lead Ms Biyere reminisces.
