The Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) Mr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah has said the authority intends to make tax compliance by companies and individuals easy.
To that end, he said the GRA has launched an online portal to enable companies to pay their taxes online. Beginning May 1, 2022, large companies will no longer file their taxes manually, but rather through the online portal.
Mr. Ammishaddai told journalists in Accra on Thursday, April 14 that “if you are going for a contract you are required to bring tax clearance certificate, but there are several government services that if you look at the Revenue Administration Act, it also lists and it mentions that you must either have a tax identification number or a tax clearance certificate.
“These are the two options but we want to emphasize the tax clearance or compliance status instead of just emphasizing the identification. What we are aiming as GRA is to make the ability to tax compliance easy.”
