Fella Makafui Cries Out After Losing 150cedis On Just One Transaction To E-Levy

Fella in a tweet, Sunday, fumed with rage after she was charged a measure of GH¢150 for a GH¢10,000 exchange.

“How do entrepreneurs survive this? The charges could literally be the benefit! Waaww… I’m speechless! 150cedis for 10k Transaction,” she tweeted.

Earlier, actress Yvonne Nelson additionally expressed concern over the implementation of the E-Levy. She mentioned that the president, Akufo-Addo “lured Ghanaians” with “huge English” during the election crusade and appears to have failed voters who had the conviction that he was very much concerned about addressing the situations of the conventional Ghanaian and improving life.

The government of Ghana rolled out the E-Levy strategy which was passed in Parliament on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, in the midst of the Minority walkout from the chamber.

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), had indicated that it has set up adequate measures to ensure the smooth take-off of the new assessment.

As per the GRA, it has extensively consulted all relevant stakeholders to ensure the collection of the E-Levy as earlier announced.

“The Authority assures the general public that adequate measures have been set up to ensure the smooth implementation of the Levy,” it said in a statement.

“GRA has held several technical sessions and engagements with the different charging entities (Electronic Money Issuers, Banks, Payment Service Providers, and Specialized Deposit-taking Institutions) on the implementation of the E-Levy, fully intent on ensuring that the charging entities are in a situation to implement the Levy by the due date,” it added.

“Following Ghana Revenue Authority’s assessment of the general readiness of some Charging Entities to integrate with the E-levy Management System, the Commissioner-General has decided on a modified phased approach for the implementation of the Levy from first of May 2022.”
