Hon. Helen Mona Quartey, Deputy Minister of Finance has challenged the GCNET to ensure that the Tax Revenue Integrated Processing System modules are all deployed and operationalized in the Large and Medium Tax Payers offices by the end of the year.
This, she explained, will not only give a boost to the tax modernization efforts but bring about efficiency in tax collection to enhance tax performance.
“We are therefore hopeful that all parties including yourselves are on course for Ghana achieving its Single Window status. This will go a long way to enhance trade facilitation even more and especially increase revenue”.
The Deputy Minister said this when she received a cheque of GH₵10 million from GCNET being the last instalment of GH₵25 million dividend for 2015.
She commended GCNET for consistently paying dividend to shareholders over the years and urged them to continue to strive to be strong, reliable and profitable to pay more dividend.
Dr Nortey K. Omaboe, Executive Chairman of GCNET on his part assured government of the company’s commitment to the Single Window project. To his end, he said the company had invested in the TRIPS, E-Registration etc. all in a bid to improve efficiency to enhance trade facilitation.
Present were officials of the Ministry, GRA and the GCNET.
