Professor Kwaku Mawutor, speaking to Akuoko Kwaterng on Kessben Tv Amansan Ntie Program this morning has urged Ghanaians to accept the E-levy. According to him many businesses are ran on the phone these days but do not pay taxes and that the introduction of E-levy will help the government generate lot of funds for the country.
Truly, there are many Ghanaians selling on social media platforms and their mode of payment is mostly through the mobile money system. All these people escape taxes and the E-levy will help prevent that in the future
He also told the Minority in parliament to accept the E-levy because it will go a long way to help successive governments. Thus in the future when they come to power, the E-levy will help them get funds to run the country.
When asked about the ongoing SIM cards re registration, he commended the idea because to him it will put a lot of crimes in check. He said it was easy for the fraudsters to steal money from mobile money accounts but now it will be very easy to get those fraudsters arrested.
