Ken Ofori-Atta surprisingly gives surest way to avoid paying E-levy

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has provided a timely ‘apor’ on how Ghanaians can swerve the controversial Electronic Transfer Levy, known widely as e-levy. 

Perhaps having realized that most Ghanaians, regardless of their political affiliations are still not happy with the initiative, had said people who wish to transfer ¢200 to another in a day can split it into two days to avoid E-Levy.

He surprisingky made these remarks when he was addressing journalists on Thursday, May 13, 2022. 

He said, “We are a country moving really forward…We know our salaries are not that high so truly, most of those that people advocate as regressive taxes are not affected at all…And if you have GH¢200, I am sure you can do it in two days and, therefore, there will be a zero-impact.”

Speaking on the anomalies associated with the roll out of the E-Levy, the finance minister said, “I don’t know of any programme which has technology involved that would not have teething problems.”
