“Vaids/N-Tax Update, Interview Process And Selection Criteria

“N-Power commenced the 2017 Application on the 13th of June, 2017. N-Power Tax, a new category, was introduced to engage Volunteers enlisted via the N-Power application process as Community Liaison Tax Officers under the Voluntary Asset and Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS). VAIDS is an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and the Joint Tax Board that encourages non-compliant taxpayers to voluntarily declare their correct income and assets and pay the appropriate tax, as well as, widen the tax net.

“The VAIDS programme seeks to select 7,500 qualified N-Tax Volunteers who will undertake tax promotion, document review, record keeping, tax enquiries response, customer management, report writing, amongst others. On the 29th of June, 2017, the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, issued an Executive Order instituting VAIDS. VAIDS has a lifespan of 9 months commencing on the 1st of July, 2017.

“As a result, the VAIDS N-Tax category will operate an expedited selection process separate from the General N-Power programme, N-Teach, N-Agro and N-Health. This would be facilitated directly by the Federal Ministry of Finance-VAIDS team.

“In connection with this, all applicants are invited to note:
• First, the 2- week extension of the N-Power application did not apply to VAIDS N-Tax. As of the 14th of July, application for VAIDS N-Tax closed with 229,245 applications. Only 186,904 applicants had their BVN and applications records matched and validated, as such were invited for the assessment tests.

• Secondly, the next phase is that of VAIDS N-Tax Physical Interviews to be conducted by the Federal Ministry of Finance VAIDS team across Nigeria. This process has since commenced by the published schedule from the Federal Ministry Finance VAIDS team. A physical verification of applicants will also be undertaken during this phase.

. • Those successful at this round will progress to the next phase of Assessment Interviews (in batches) which will hold, according to the Federal Ministry of Finance VAIDS team, at the Treasury Academy, Orozo, Abuja. Again, the Federal Ministry of Finance VAIDS team will contact successful applicants and invite them for this stage of interviews. This would culminate with a written assessment test.

The final stage is that of Selection and Deployment.

For ease of reference, please note the VAIDS/ N- TAX selection process:

  1. Application
  2. BVN Validation
  3. Test
  4. Physical Interview in States and Physical Verification
  5. Assessment Interview
  6. Final Selection

“N-Power is the Registration/Application Partner for VAIDS/N-TAX. As the Recruitment Partner for the process, N-Power was responsible for Process 1-3 ONLY.

“The Ministry of Finance/VAIDS team will lead on the implementation of Process 4-7.

“Kindly note that having completed processes 1-3, N-Power is NOT involved in the implementation of processes 4-7 and has handed over the entire exercise to Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) VAIDS/N-TAX”.
