GRA To Tax Antoa, Nogokpo, Other Shrines  .


In an effort to expand the tax net to cover the untaxed population, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has served notice to tax the operations of shrines in the country.

As a result, fearful shrines like Antoa in the Ashanti region and Nogokpo in the Volta region among others have been earmarked by the GRA in their line of operation to increase the tax net.

The new twist to revenue collection was announced by the Commissioner-General of GRA, Mr Emmanuel Kofi Nti to The Chronicle, after a recent pronouncement that the Authority is planning to tax the commercial activities of churches.

Mr Nti, during a media engagement in Accra indicated that his officials will be bold to enter the fearful shrines to collect taxes for the development of the country.

The Commissioner-General, announcing a-two-year master plan on revenue collection, hinted that GRA will be tough on tax defaulters and evaders, adding “GRA is now going to bite.”

He disclosed that the purpose of his two years plan was to improve the performance of GRA and for them to rub shoulders with the best in Africa.

He said the Tax Authority is also engaging an international consultancy firm, Mckinsey & Company to help it block revenue leakages that persist in its revenue collection.
