FIRS Salary Scale, Structure and Departments

Over the years, FIRS proudly announces that they have the most lucrative salaries in Nigeria. Given the vast amount of revenue that the country accrues, FIRS’s salary structure is quite different from what is obtainable in a regular public sector. Like every well-structured organization, FIRS staff comprises individuals from almost every field which enables the organization to run very smoothly.

Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), which was established in 1943, is a regulatory agency charged with the responsibility of assessing, collecting, and accounting for revenues and taxes accruable to the Federal Government of Nigeria. These revenues are utilized in financing government expenses. Some of its workers include Engineers, Accountants, Administrators, Tax Officers, and many others who ensure the daily running of the corporation. FIRS also employ corps members who are paid stipends for their services.

FIRS Salary Structure

Even though what they earn may not be compared to that of workers in multinational oil companies like Shell, Chevron, or ExxonMobil, FIRS staff remains one of the highest-paid workers in Nigeria’s public sector. Before delving into how much the staff earns at different levels, it is worthy to note that the salary structure is dependent on certain factors, just like many organizations. The factors include the field of study or department, grade level, position held, and years of service with the FIRS.

The Federal Inland Revenue Service boast of a well-defined salary structure for its staff. According to reports, a monthly net income for an average level 8 employee at FIRS is ₦103,987 which means a yearly remuneration of ₦1,247,854. On the other hand, a grade 7 employee earns a monthly income of ₦87,434 before the deduction of tax and pension; meaning ₦1,073,217 per annum.

As expected of a government office, the Federal Inland Revenue Service staff members are entitled to other decent benefits and allowances apart from the basic monthly salaries.
