The e-levy is a new tax measure introduced by the government in the 2022 Budget on basic transactions related to digital payments and electronic platform transactions.

Critics of the proposal, including the Minority have warned that the new levy will negatively impact the Fintech space, as well as hurt low-income persons.

The government has, however, argued the levy would widen the tax net as it could raise an extra GH¢6.9 billion in 2022.

Minority walk out of Parliament

The Minority staged a walkout in Parliament during the consideration of the controversial Electronic Transfer Levy (E-levy) at the second reading stage on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.

The second reading of the levy saw the bill being adopted at the reduced rate of 1.5% from the initial proposed rate of 1.75%.

The bill is currently under consideration by a Majority house, following the Minority’s boycott.

Members of the Majority are also deliberating on some proposed amendments to the bill which have been introduced by the government.

  3. I have noticed that sensible real estate agents all around you are warming up to FSBO Promoting. They are noticing that it’s not only placing a sign post in the front yard. It’s really concerning building human relationships with these dealers who at some point will become buyers. So, whenever you give your time and effort to aiding these retailers go it alone — the “Law associated with Reciprocity” kicks in. Good blog post.

  4. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I’m hoping the same high-grade website post from you in the upcoming as well.
