The company bears the entire tax burden as the products elasticity of demand becomes perfectly elasticity of (i.e the company lost as a result of high price on lost as a result of high price on lost as a products, the resource becomes, inelastic. Be that as it to negatively effect. The objective of this study were achieved through the use of personal interview to select management staff different departments from the company on the basis of the conclusion and the understated recommendation were drawn and effectiveness of tax reducing the effect on manufacturing firms especially locally mented when ‘‘Beta Glass Plc, Ughelli.

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The role of manufacturing sector cannot over emphasize. It plays considerable role both economic and social development o any nation. The import on any instituted policy on the manufacturing sectors will consequently displays immense effects on the development rate and social life of the people.
Various governments in Nigeria have various times devised measures to encourage and develop the manufacturing sectors. Precisely, in Abacha’s administration, during his 1998 budgets the head of the state recognized and promised to find MAXIM, and NERFUND, these are bodies responsible to provide loans for small scale industries and also it is a measure for encouragement. This is in consonance with the objective of creating employment through technological and home manufacturing goods. Another motive is discourage our independence on imported goods to improve the balance of payment position, this was why the federal military government, in the 70’s (during “oil boom”) introduced the granting of tax holidays and incentives to manufacturing industries during the early years of commencement of operation.
The company income tax degree, 1979n also provides for incentives for incentives for such companies. These incentive range from granted of capital allowance of allowable capital expenditure to granting of loss relief.
The government also grants certain concession to manufacturing industries in the areas of importation of spare parts and raw materials a result of that government measures many manufacturing companies sponge up. This help job creation and rapid economic development in the country.
As a result of world or that from 1982, Nigeria began to suffer economic depression austerity as a measure was introduction from 1984 to 1985 as result of high position, many manufacturing companies collapsed and many workers were retrenched since then successive government have been trying to stimulate the manufacturing sectors like the pass years, budget 1998. This administration has viewed to provide incentive to business wishing to invest in economic utilization of the gas. The incentive included duly and vat free import of machinery and equipment, tax holiday for five years, zero percentage royally zero percent, petroleum profit tax for used, tax deductible interest on loan for gas projects investment capital allowances, and tax free dividend for a period of five years. The research will therefore, focus its attention to the problem and effect of taxation on the manufacturing sectors of Beta Glass Plc, Ughelli

b. does indirect taxes on manufacturing concern influence the industry
c. does the effort by the government to ensure capacity utilization and efficiency in production influence the industry
1.6 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This is to access the effect of taxation on manufacturing industry
Using Beta Glass Plc, Ughelli, as a case study. Which enable the researcher to look into the extent to which government fiscal policy affects, the operation and performance of the manufacturing sector in Nigeria.
1.8 DEFINITION OF TERMS
Some terms which were frequently used in this project and some unfamiliar one were defined and explained. These terms includes inflation, deflation, depression and taxation.
1. Inflation:- Can be defined as sustained rise in price or higher monetary expansion in the economy or a general increase in prices in an economy and consequent fall in the purchase values of money.
2. Deflation:- This is lower monetary expansion in the economy that is the set of deflation or a general fall in the price level. The opposite of inflation, as with inflation, a general change in the price level should, in theory, have no real effect; however, if traders are holding goods whose prices fall, they may suffer such large losses that they are forced into bankruptcy. However, agents holding money are simultaneously better off, although there may be a lag in increasing expenditure, during which a recession may occur. The only major deflation in the last century occurred during the great depression in the 1920s and 1930. Since then governments have avoided deflation wherever possible.
3. Depression:- this is a period when there is little economy activity and many people are poor or without job. An extended or sever period of recession. Depressions occur infrequently and some economists believe they occur in long (about 50 years) cycles. The most recent great depression occurred in the 1930s, prior to that they occurred in the periods 1983 – 96, 1844 – 51 and 1810 – 17 depressions are usually associated with falling price (deflation) and large – scale involuntary unemployment. They are often preceded by major financial crashes e.g. the wall street crash of 1929
4. Taxation:- A levy on individual or corporate bodies by central or local government in order to finance the expenditure of that government and also as a means of implementing its fiscal policy. Payment for specific services rendered to, or for the payer are not regarded as taxation in the UK, and individual’s income is taxed by means of an income tax (PAYE), while corporations pay a corporation tax. Increase individual wealth is taxed by means of capital gains tax and by inheritance tax. See also direct taxation indirect taxation and value added tax. Or is a compulsory level that is not punitive by the government to the citizens for the provision of social goods and services or public goods and services or jointly used goods and services e.g Road, bridge hospital, defense, education and diplomatic services etc
