Build closer collaboration in revenue collection - Manager

10.02.2014 LISTEN

He said this would help generate more revenue for the Municipal Assembly to boost development in the area.

Mr Gyekye gave the advice in an address at a sensitisation meeting with staff of the Consult in Madina in Accra.

He said as much as the people agitated for good road networks and drainage systems, there was the need for individuals, workers and non-governmental organisations to come together to assist the Internal Revenue Authority and other tax collection agents to increase revenue for the state.

He deplored the rampant siting of metal containers and kiosks along major roads as stores and workshops, adding that this did not augur well for smooth revenue collection.

Mr Gyekye, therefore, called on assembly members to liaise with landlords to build shops on their lands, saying this would ensure easier revenue collection and decongest the area of containers and wooden structures.

To achieve this noble objective, he urged the Information Department of the Assembly to embark on public tax education across the municipality since tax collection was difficult and required patience.
