The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has become the latest government agency to embrace the government’s digitization drive.
The GRA, in a memo to its staff directed that effective July 1, 2021, “all payments for Taxes and Duties shall be made directly to GRA Accounts with the various banks
through the various means such as cash, bank drafts, bank transfers, ACH, swift, cards, momo, and other electronic means.”
The GRA directives also stated that the GRA will “cease accepting personal and corporate cheques for payment of Taxes and Customs Duties effective June 1, 2021.”
The memo, however, added that existing cheques that have already been received for the payment of Duties and Taxes will continue to be presented but the GRA warns no new cheque will be received after June 1, 2021.
