Uber, Bolt customers to pay more as Lagos introduces new taxes


Customers are set to pay more for ride-hailing services such as Uber and Bolt due to a new regulation being introduced by the Lagos State Government which is set to come into effect on August 20, 2020.

According to the document, all operators of e-hailing taxi service must pay the state government 10 per cent service tax on each transaction paid by passengers to the operators.

The new policy also mandates all e-hailing taxi firms to pay N25 million yearly to the state government per 1,001 vehicles for an operational licence while they will pay N10 million yearly for renewal on every 1, 001 cars in their pool.

The state government also makes it compulsory for all ride-hailing services to make its database accessible to the government.
