Have you just started a new business? Did you know expenses incurred before a business begins operations are not allowed as current deductions? If you want to deduct a larger portion of your start up cost in the first year, a new business will want to begin operations as early as possible and hold off incurring some of those expenses until after business begins.

The following are however exempted from tax: –

  • Medical or Dental expenses incurred by the employee;
  • Retirement gratuities and compensation loss of office;
  • The cost of passage to or from Nigeria incurred by the employee;
  • Interest on loans for developing an owner-occupied residential house;
  • Leave allowance, which is computed as 10% of annual basic salary subject to a maximum of N7, 500 per annum.
