The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) will from today issue administrative guidelines for the implementation of the E-Levy.
In a series of tweets on Friday, April 22 the GRA said the Commissioner-General Mr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah will issue administrative guidelines as may be required for the efficient and effective implementation of the e-levy Act.
The GRA tweeted “Basic Information on the E-Levy [Thread] The Electronic Transfer Levy Act, 2022 (Act 1075) imposes a levy of 1.5% on electronic transfers – section 1(1) The Levy is charged to the transferor at the time of transfer. – section 1”
It added “The Commissioner-General may issue Administrative Guidelines as may be required for the efficient and effective implementation of the Act. – section 9.
“The Minister may make Regulations for the efficient and effective implementation of the Act. – section 8.”
Meanwhile, MP for North Tongu Okudzeto Ablakwa said they are considering citing the Ghana Revenue Authority and Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu for contempt over their E-Levy commentaries.
He said they will draw the attention of the court to the lawless path the GRA and others want to take.
"I want to caution the GRA Commissioner and others who want to take a lawless path that we will remain committed to the lawful and constitutional path..."
"We will draw the attention of the court that these persons and agencies are poised to be contemptuous of the court..."
The Majority Leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has said the injunction application filed against the implementation of the e-levy by the Minority at the Supreme Court is an exercise in futility.
