According to the circular from government, which says, sequel to the provision in the newly introduced finance bill, TIN has been made mandatory for both individuals and corporate entities according to the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
The implications of this is that all account owners, both savings and current must have a TIN, just as all bank account owners must have BVN.
Bank might decided to freeze any account that is not TIN compliance from January 2020.
