Ghana Revenue Authority Plans On Taxing Online Businesses In Second Half Of 2022

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) is planning on making GHC 2.7 Billion from taxes as it targets betting, gaming, and e-commerce companies this year.

The GRA wants to collect most of its tax revenue from betting, gaming, and online companies including Facebook, Google, Netflix, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Tiktok.

Ready To Deploy In Second Half Of 2022

The Commissioner of the Domestic Tax Revenue Division (DTRD) of the GRA, Mr Edward Appenteng Gyamerah stated that the GRA is rolling out a policy to enable it to have a fair share of taxes from most of these companies.

The Commissioner said they had already started discussions with some of these online foreign entities and they’ve already started registering within Ghana to comply with the new policy.

The Commissioner also stated that they were developing a system to monitor operations of these entities which is currently under test trial and they had that it would be deployed in the second quarter of 2022.

He, therefore, appealed to the players and other stakeholders to support the authority to collect the right taxes due to the state.
