The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) intends to apply part of its DFID supported funds to fund eligible payments towards the cost of selecting Software Developers to develop THE INTEGRATED TAX RETURNS PREPARATION SOFTWARE (I-TAPS).
1. Vision and Objectives
The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) is committed to making the completion of tax returns and assessment by taxpayers in Ghana an easy and straightforward activity.
As a result of the integration of the three erstwhile revenue agencies into the GRA, the need to provide the taxpayer with a tax helper software that can now include multiple (and integrated) tax types is required. The requirement has been entitled ‘the integrated Tax returns Preparation Software’ (i-TapS).
The i-Taps should support the numerous improvements in the way in which the GRA now handles tax management, and should be in line with, and provide support to, the current Tax legislation the GRA is mandated to administer.
2. Tax Types
The software must be developed to generate the following Tax Returns that would be submitted to the GRA by taxpayers both in hard and/or soft copies.
a. Pay As You Earn (PAYE)
b. Personal Income Tax (PIT)
c. Value Added Tax (VAT)
d. Withholding Tax (WHT)
e. Company Self-Assessment Estimates and an Electronic Book Keeping module.
The Ghana Revenue Authority therefore invites Software Developers that have been in practice for a minimum of three (3) years to indicate their interest and capacity to undertake the said assignment by providing proposals with information that indicates the following:
• Company Profile
• Profile of key personnel
• Experience in assignment of comparable scope that has been undertaken in recent times/List of clientele base
• Evidence of good corporate membership of the requisite professional bodies (where applicable)
• Valid Tax Clearance Certificate
• Valid SSNIT Clearance Certificate
• Company Registration Certification
• Company Registration Certificate Renewal
Interested eligible Software Developers may obtain further information from Room 001 on the ground floor of Head Office Annex of Ghana Revenue Authority from 9.00am to 4.30pm on all working days. (Attention-Roland Asampana)
