For the e-levy implementation, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has instructed charging entities to guarantee that any incorrect deductions are quickly reversed.
This order was given by the GRA in its administrative guidelines (PDF) for the policy’s implementation, which were released on Friday, April 29.
On March 30, Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta said, “we had some meetings with Controller and Accountant Generals Department (CAGD) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and they have said right at the beginning of May they should be able to put their system together.”
The GRA adjusted the stepwise strategy for implementing the e-levy beginning May 1 on Thursday, April 28.
“Following the Ghana Revenue Authority’s assessment of the general readiness of some Charging Entities to integrate with the E-levy Management System, the Commissioner General has decided on a modified phased approach for the implementation of the e-levy from 1st May,” the GRA said in a statement.
