For those who are against the newly introduced electronic transactions levy thus the e-levy, you may need to take a look at what Carlos Ahenkorah, MP, has to say to you regarding the turnout of events ahead of transitioning into 2022.
Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah is a Ghanaian politician, a Member of Parliament for the Tema West constituency, and the CEO of Carlos King Freight Services. Also, he was a Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry in Ghana and currently the chairman of Parliament’s Trades Committee.
A larger portion of Ghanaians has announced their opinions on the controversial e-levy introduced in the 2022 budget which is currently laid before the Parliament of Ghana for appropriation and debate.
It is very obvious that most Ghanaians are not ready to pay taxes on electronic transactions. However, Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah thinks otherwise. The MP, while speaking to TV3 Ghana from the House of Parliament explained that taxes are always rejected by people who are expected to pay so this is not new.
According to him, the e-levy tax is not a compulsory tax imposed on Ghanaians but rather one that you will pay only when you use the service. Mr. Ahenkorah went on to say that MoMo service is cheaper so anyone who wants to use it will be charged a levy which the government is not going to look back on.
