Although the bill has not been passed, but the probability of passing the bill seems high because the majority group in parliament are in support of it.
According to the image, a transaction of GH₵150 cedis will attract an amount of GH₵4.13 cedis instead of the usual GH₵1.50.
Also a transaction of GH₵ 1,000 cedis which now attracts GH₵10 will be GH₵ 27.50 cedis when the E-Levy is passed.
It should be noted that the levy will be applied to every transaction above GHS 100 on a daily basis.
Social Media has reacted to this. Check some of the comments below.
