‘The tax will affect Ghanaians’- 2022 Budget rejected after Majority side walk out
The Parliament’s Minority caucus has committed to oppose the government’s proposal to levy a 1.75 percent tax on all electronic financial transactions.
Haruna Iddrisu, the Minority Leader, reaffirmed this during the Post-Budget session in Ho on Saturday.
The tax, he claims, is a deterrent to investment and private-sector development.
According to Haruna Iddrisu, the tax will affect Ghanaians.
“Our concern is whether the e-levy itself will not be a disincentive to the growth of a digital economy in our country. We are convinced that the e-levy may as well even be a disincentive to investments and private sector development in our country… We in the Minority will not support government with the introduction of that e-levy. We are unable to build national consensus on that particular matter,”
