Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) on May 1, imposed a rate of 1.5% on all electronic transactions above GH¢100.00 leaving the country which set the country into a state of “hullabaloo“.
As discussions on E-levy is mostly hot and highly contentious, DIGITAX has announced a webinar dubbed, ‘Ghana’s E-Levy: two months in, what do we know?’, as a research program on the origin and implementation of the tax.
Being the first in a series of webinars on Taxes and Digital Financial Services (DFS) organized by the International Centre for Tax and Development, the event aims to begin a well-informed conversation, open to a Ghanaian and international audience, which leads to a better understanding of the tax’ design, its implementation, its effects as experienced by different parts of society, and ultimately what the tax’s implications for other countries in similar situations may be.
With prominent speakers, the virtual event scheduled for June 24, will touch on What is the E-Levy and how is it being discussed in Ghana? and Who is affected by it and how?
Book a seat here to attend the event via ZOOM.
