We support E-LEVY” – MoMo agents assure Prez Akufo-Addo

The Ghana Mobile Money Agents Association (MMAAG) indicated its preparedness to help the government administer the Electronic Transactions Levy on on Tuesday (E-Levy). 

The organization noted that paying taxes is an important tool for any country's development and advancement, and that it will collaborate with the government to encourage E-levy adoption. 

That commitment was made when the association's leadership met with President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House in Accra. 

Despite the association's initial objection to the E-Tax, Evans Otumfuor, the MMAAG's General Secretary, persuaded the President that the levy was critical for the country's recovery from the recent economic disaster. 

"We also recognize that the government will be obliged to take tough measures in difficult times." We're here as allies because the e-levy is now law and all citizens must comply," he explained. 

Mr. Otumfuor complimented the administration for reducing the tax from 1.75 percent to 1.5 percent and for offering exemptions. 

For his part, President Akufo-Addo congratulated the group for its entrepreneurial spirit, which has resulted in the growth of the mobile money market and the government's digitalization plan. 

"This offer of partnership, the concept of joining an alliance to investigate how we can properly implement and develop this new tax," he added, "is very much appreciated." 

"I appreciate your offer of cooperation in ensuring the smooth administration of this contentious tax." Direct stakeholders like you, I believe, have the right to express their concerns in this way.
