In 2019, the Association had gotten a judgment from the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, whereby the court had invalidated the powers of the FIRS to collect VAT from the members of the Association.

The Court of Appeal also struck out the Counter claim of the Lagos State Government against FIRS. Yesterday’s judgment has therefore affirmed the authority of FIRS to collect VAT from all taxpayers.
