Court stops LASG from enforcing 5% hotel tax law

Justice Rilwan Aikawa, sitting at the Federal High Court in Lagos has restrained the Lagos State Government from enforcing the provisions of its new Hotel Occupancy and Restaurant (Fiscalisation) Regulations 2017.

The law introduced a five per cent consumption tax in addition to a five per cent Value Added Tax on every purchase or service rendered by hotels, restaurants, fast food outlets, event centres, bars and night clubs.

But in a ruling on March 21, 2018, the court restrained the state from further enforcing the law.
