Revenue AuthorityThe introduction of the self-assessment module into tax management in Ghana in line with international practices will not affect the integrity of tax management in the country.

Mr Benedictus Danu, Volta Regional Manager of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Domestic Tax Division, who told the Ghana News Agency on Wednesday said, that was because of the audit trail and punitive regimes built into the system to check under-assessments and deviations.

He was speaking on the sidelines of a short ceremony in Ho to dedicate three Toyota Hilux Pick-ups for the Division’s operations in the region.

He said under the emerging system, tax authorities would address the specific needs of tax payers as the burden of compliance shifts onto businesses.

Mr Danu said the vehicles were part of the logistics beef of the tax collecting machinery in the region in readiness of the implementation of the reforms going on in the sector.

He said Volta Region, under the reforms would have four Small Tax Offices (STOs) and one Medium Tax Office (MTO).

Mr Danu said companies listed in the Volta Region to be handled by MTOs include, Diamond Cement Ghana Limited, at Aflao and some hospitality facilities.

Reverend George Abutiate, Priest of the E.P. Church, Ghana, Dela Parish Ho-Kpodzi, who did the sanctification, urged staff to follow the recommended rudiments for the operation of the vehicles and other equipment to warrant spiritual protection.

One of the vehicles would be used at the offices of STO in the Keta Municipality.
