The passage of E-levy has indeed paved way for many more taxes to trip in.
The deputy tourism minister, Hon. Mark Okraku Mantey has made a suggestion to the government to shift their attention to the online businesses that involves YouTube, ITunes, selling of clothes and other stuffs.
This assertion came through when the minister granted an interview to GTV. He reiterated that businesses online can support build the better Ghana if they contribute something in a way of tax to help the nation.
Hon. Mantey maintains that many small businesses hardly thrive in Ghana because they’re overburdened with so many taxes. This leaves other sectors or where priorities must be set to generate revenues to the development of Ghana.
He went on to explain how many online businesses are making money without paying anything to the government on their sales online.
The minister said, his people, thus, the creative arts industry is making a lot of money and they need to settle the government to help provide the things the society needs.
E-levy will go along way to help everyone. The minister thinks that it’s only this tax that gets all involved. He pointed that both the formal and the informal sector workers pay to the government.
E-levy in his reason will help tax all online workers so that certain needs of the people could be made available through the generated funds.
