ATM withdrawals do not attract e-levy – Technical C’ttee member

A member of the E-Levy Technical Committee at the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) Isaac Amoako, has said ATM withdrawals do not attract e-levy.

He also said “If you use checks no e-levy will apply.”

Mr Amoako said these on the Key Points on TV3 with host Dzifa Bampoh, Saturday April 16.

The Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta earlier revealed that the implementation of the e-levy will start in May this year.

He said that is the assurance he has been given by the Controller and Accountant General (CAGD) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), who will be the revenue collectors.

“We had some meetings with Controller and Accountant Generals Department (CAGD) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and they have said right at the beginning of May they should be able to put their system together,” he told TV3’s Roland Walker in Parliament after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo delivered the State of the Nation Address on Wednesday March 30.

The E-levy was passed by Parliament on Tuesday March 29 after the Minority had walked out from Parliament.
