The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has restated its call for the business community to report any officials who demand cash payments for taxes.
This reminder comes in the context of the GRA’s policy update, as the authority no longer accepts cash or personal and corporate cheques for tax payments.
The move aims to enhance transparency and efficiency in the tax payment process, discouraging any attempts by officials to collect cash payments, which could potentially lead to corrupt practices.
In a Facebook post, the GRA urged the public to “report any staff who requests cash payment” to the “Office Manager of the Taxpayer Service Centre, The GRA Head office, Off Starlets’ 91 Road, near Accra Sports Stadium, Ministries”.
“Alternatively, anyone who wants to make a report can call toll-free number 0800 900 110 or WhatsApp on 055 299 0000 / 020 063 1664.
“Also, via Email to [email protected].”
The GRA, in a bid to enhance, revenue mobilisation across the country, began operating cashless system on 1 June, 2023, by halting the acceptance of corporate and personal cheques for the payment of custom duties and taxes.
