Since April 2017, THE NIGERIA CUSTOMS had started plans TO DEPLOY E-AUCTION PLATFORM ON 1ST OF JULY
In the news, the Nigerian Customs Service after repeated tests of the e-auction platform Nigeria Customs is now set to deploy the e-auction portal on the 1st of July 2017.
The portal for Nigeria Customs Service e-auction is now fully networked to designated banks to ensure money accruing from the auction gets to the Central bank of Nigeria Treasury Single Account for transparency and accountability.
After receiving the report, the Comptroller General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali(Rtd) directed the auction committee to ensure that only proper pictures of the goods, as well as detailed information about each, are uploaded to avoid and misgiving. He further stressed the need for more weeks to enable interested members of the public to obtain their Tax identification numbers (TIN) from the federal inland revenue before the commencement date.
The platform which is highly interactive will only give access to holders of TIN. Such tax payers will log in, read the guidelines, pay the nonrefundable one thousand auction fee and proceed to bid for the items on auction.
Recall that the CGC resumed duty in 2015 with three pronged Presidential mandates of Restructure, Reform and seek ways of raising revenue.
The manual auction was identified as noncompetitive and opened to abuses hence it was suspended.
The committee set up has now developed an e-auction platform that is secured transparent and guarantees equal opportunities to all Nigerians.
All interested persons are therefore advised to get ready by obtaining their Tax identification numbers issued by Federal Inland Revenue
