Electronic Clearing of Cheques does not attract E-Levy – Ghana Revenue Authority

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has emphasized that electronic clearing of cheques does not attract E-Levy.

The Authority is currently holding e-Levy stakeholder sensitization workshops at various locations in Accra and Kumasi.

The aim is to break down the tax law so that “we all understand and know what the levy applies to and what it doesn’t apply to,” the GRA said.

“If you transfer from your personal account (registered under your name) to your company account (registered under your company name) you will be charged the levy,” the authority tweeted.

The e-levy started on May 1, 2022 amidst public concerns.

Officials at the GRA said earlier that they were available to receive complaints regarding the implementation of the e-levy policy.

Florence Otoo, Head of Communications and Public Affairs at the GRA told TV3 in interview that the authority has created hotlines through which the public can reach the GRA to file their complaints.

“If you complain to your charging entity or you have some difficulties or challenges or you have been deducted the e-levy in a wrongful manner and you are not satisfied with what your entity is doing, GRA is also available.

“We have hotlines, we have our toll free line that is 0800900110. If you call that number we will be able to make sure that we are addressing your challenges,” she said.
