The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has stated that multiple exemptions being enjoyed by mobile money users with more than one account is temporary.
A Principal Revenue Officer and Head of the Project Management Unit for GRA, Isaac Kobina Amoako, stressed that this will phase out “on July 1, 2022.”
The e-levy law stipulates that consumers are expected to be charged per account, but currently, consumers with multiple accounts are enjoying multiple exemptions.
CEO of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, Ken Ashigbey, explained on the Super Morning Show on Thursday that “what is happening is that not all the charging entities have been rolled onto the common platform which would have been able to take your unique identifier, therefore, if you have multiple SIMs then you’ll be enjoying multiple exemptions.”
However, the Ghana Revenue Authority has assured that this will end by the close of June.
