Courier Service Companies License Fee To Increase By 200%. Delivery Services Charges To Go Up?

It seems the quest by the government to find ways and means to generate revenue internally is making it desperate, as fees and charges for services in all departments and agencies of government are going up. 


It was announced in the 2022 budget that, all fees and charges of government services will be increased by a minimum of 15%. However, reports are that, some of these increment is being done contrary to the figure approved in the budget. 


An example is the annual license fee that is paid by courier service companies. Credible report has it that, these companies have been emailed and told that, the Ghc 1,500 they very year will now move to Ghc 4,500. 

This astronomical increase means that, the food and other items you trade online will go up. Delivery Services cost will go up. 


E-commerce generally is about to be an expensive venture. 


While at these kinds of unjustified increases, the government is ironically promoting digitalisation. E-levy, which already threatening the existence of mobile banking, couple with such charges show that, the government is not giving thorough thinking in initiating these policies. 


These are Counterproductive policies, and the government must find other innovative means of getting the revenue it so desperately needs. Leave the online marketing alone.
