The Government of Ghana will today May 1 roll out the implementation of the much dreaded electronic Transactions Levy known popularly as E-levy.

This move by the government is to generate revenue from various electronic transactions for the development of Ghana.

Government has announced that it will charge 1.5% of all electronic transactions as E-levy.

Although the Minority in Parliament has sued the government over the passing of the bill into law, the government has said that it is prepared to roll out regardless.

Announcing Government’s preparedness John Kumah who is the Deputy Finance Minister said ““The government will, on 1st May 2022, fully rollout the E-Levy. Already, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has put in place the required infrastructure to seamlessly interface with that of the Telcos for the smooth rollout of the levy on Sunday 1st May 2022.

Contrary to some naysayers’ expectations, the GRA, Ministry of Finance, and the Telcos have had fruitful deliberations over the levy’s implementation these past weeks. The deliberations among the various stakeholders have helped address all potential implementation concerns. Indeed, the extensive deliberations climaxed on Wednesday 27th April 2022, when the final road map for implementation was agreed on.”

Social Media is reacting to the levy which seems to have been rolled out.
