Electronic Transaction Levy (commonly known as Electronic Levy or E-levy) is a tax applied on transactions made on electronic or digital platforms.
Before its implementation, Ghanaians shared their views on it. It became a topic of national interest.
The greater fraction of the population was not in support of the concept, stating that the charges are huge and that they see no need in taxing electronic money trades.
Others argued that they are not seeing the use of the taxes in effect already hence there is no need for the government to additional charge taxes.
Obviously, on the contrary, the remaining citizens rooted for the E-Levy to be implemented and finally it’s in effect. All electronic transactions are now taxed at a 1.5% rate.
Prince David Osei remarking on the new tax that has been rolled by the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) on electronic transactions, said the charges are unbearable.
Sharing his upset opinions on the E-Levy, the award-winning actor pledged that should the NPP government make no proper use of the tax, he will campaign against the government just as he put all his energy into 4more4Nana to do more campaigns in 2020.
He also claimed there’s so much misappropriation of state funds and resources and this he says must stop now.
Adding more to his views via a post, he said that he wants to see improvement in the standard of living, growth in our economy, higher GDP, Cedis stabilized against other currencies etc.
