Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) have requested a six to eight weeks from the Ministry of Communications to realign their systems in other to comply with the directive measure in the communication service tax (CST).
The Minister of Communications, Mrs Ursula Owusu Ekuful who made this known at a press briefing in Accra on Monday said a failure by the Telcos to comply with the directive would attract punitive measures such as the withdrawal of their licenses.
“All users of goods and services in this country are also required to pay VAT, NHIL and GET Fund levy. How are those deducted? Well, the Telcos can say that they haven’t been passing on the CST and so they thought that that was the easiest mode in which to do and make it easier to account for.
