BoG Initiates Online Payment System For Collateral Registry

The Central Bank of Ghana has initiated an online payment platform for the Collateral Registry System.

The Bank made this known on May 22, in a statement signed by its Secretary, Madam Sandra Thompson.

It says under the statutory Mandate of the Borrowers and Lenders Act 2008 (Act) 773, the Bank of Ghana operationalized the establishment of the Ghana Collateral Registry on 1st February 2010, to register charges and collaterals set up by borrowers, to secure credit facilities provided by lenders.

It added that this was in pursuant of its mandate to regulate, monitor and direct the banking and credit system, and facilitate the smooth operation of the financial sector.

The Collateral Registry operates a 24/7 web-based system, which serves lending institutions and the general public, the Bank stated.

“With reference to the Bank of Ghana NOTICE NO. BG/GOV/SEC/2013/10, the use of some services of the registry requires payment. The current modes of payment are the post-paid mode and the pre-paid mode, which require a deposit to be made at the Bank of Ghana”, it says.

 

“In addressing the inconveniences associated with the existing pre-paid mode of payment, Bank of Ghana has introduced an online payment service for the Collateral Registry web-based system. This online payment service affords clients of the Collateral Registry the option to pay for the services rendered by either Mobile Money (MTN MoMo, Vodafone Cash and AirtelTigo Money) or Visa/MasterCard,” it added.

“With this new feature, the Collateral Registry Online Payment System will go live on Monday, 25th May 2020, and will be accessible via the URL www.collateralregistry.gov.gh,” it emphasized.
