Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has taken a section of journalists in Parliament through the nation’s tax laws and what is being done to mobilize revenue for national development at a two days work at Prampram.

The 35 Journalists were taken through the importance of introduction and enforcement of Tax Identification Number (TIN), introduction of paperless system and the impact of generating revenue and modernizing Ghana’s revenue system to drive efficiency in boosting tax revenue.

Mr. Henry Yentumi who represented the commissioner General of GRA in his address noted that the institution considers the media as a partner to get their message across to their stakeholders to enhance their revenue mobilization for national development.

We have undergone reforms and revised our tax laws, we have introduced Tax Identification Numbers, exercise stamp, and a paperless tax clearance system among others. These have been rolled out with the aim of widening the tax net to increase revenue mobilization.
