We also see ourselves as playing a very critical role in driving and growing our economy; of which tax compliance is key”.

Per the new tax law, a number of business activities which prior to the review were exempted from taxation have now been included while others that already attracted taxes will see some increases. Both individuals and companies will be affected by the new law which has engendered complaints from majority of Ghanaians.
