National Tax Campaign on Voluntary Compliance

On 1st November, 2017, Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) launched a nationwide tax campaign on voluntary tax compliance.  The tagline for the campaign is #OurTaxesOurFuture.  The campaign is about developing and sustaining a national conversation on taxes; increasing awareness of Ghanaians on the importance of this important civic obligation and the disservice we do to our country if we do not pay our taxes.

The campaign is for all levels of taxpayers and potential taxpayers.  It is being carried out through the print, electronic, social media, stakeholder engagements, personal interactions and contacts, community outreach including engagements in churches, mosques, markets and compliance activities by GRA.  It is aimed at expanding the tax net, increasing revenue and increasing the level of voluntary compliance.

      What should the Public Do?
•    GRA expects businesses already registered to visit the tax offices nearest them to update their tax records and settle all outstanding liabilities or make arrangements to settle.
•    Businesses to inform GRA of any change in their business operations, (i.e. location, nature, directors etc.)
•    New businesses not yet registered with GRA to visit the tax offices and register their businesses
•    The doors of GRA are open for information on any tax issue.  GRA expects the public to provide information on unregistered businesses in their communities to GRA.
Additionally, a Complainant Award Scheme is in place for informants who are assured of strict confidentiality.
I Pay My Tax, do you?
