Ghana Revenue Authority Will Launch Automation Of All Tax Clearing Certificates
The Ghana Revenue Authority has plans underway to automate all tax clearing in Ghana. The objective is to assist with decreasing the avoidance of duties in Ghana.
As indicated by the Commissioner-General, Reverend Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, the interaction will include two ways: A USSD Code and the Ghana Card.
“We have gone far in automating the tax clearance certificate. We have come to a point where you do not need to write to apply”, he pointed out at a recent conference.
“It is done in two ways, you can either apply through a USSD code. You can dial *222# to know if you are compliant or not. Likewise, you can also go to our website, where you can check compliance”, he continued.
He added that the individuals who default can’t recharge their driver’s permit or roadworthy.
“A time will come that your tax compliance will be checked before renewing your driver’s License or roadworthy.” he stated.
“Once we are able to fully ensure the total automation of the system, no one will compel you to file your taxes. Technology and digitization will ensure tax compliance”, the Commissioner-General said.
