Dear Creditor,

This notification is to update you regarding Government recent pronouncement aimed at liberalizing the payment system in the country within this Month of December 2019. In response to the numerous complaints coming especially from foreign beneficiaries, Government has taken some urgent measures to facilitate the process of foreign payment in the country.

The most essential part of these measures is the removal of upfront payments of official levies, taxes or fees. Under the new payment system, all taxes, fees or levies are to be deducted from the approved sum while we release net to you, conditions apply please take note.

Now, having cross-checked your records, we have observed that you have not settled some Government charges accruing to the Federal Government of Nigeria which, according to the minuted report in your payment file, is the reason you have not received your payment till date. In order to avoid any further delay on your payment, we have planned to make deductions of the relevant charges, dues, levies or taxes accruable to the Government from your outstanding claim and then, release the balance to you as quickly as possible.

However, based on the existing rules governing settlement of foreign claims in the country as amended, we have no authority to make any such deductions without your consent presentation of deduction permit from you. Therefore, if you will permit deduction of the relevant charges from your fund, you should write back to us urgently confirming your acceptance of the modality so that we could advise you further and proceed on the necessary steps leading to your payment.
