The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) is fighting back claims that it is deliberately harassing members of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) over tax collections.
According to the Authority, the operation to collect all taxes owed the State is part of measures to ensure that government rakes in tax revenues to undertake developmental projects.
GUTA in a press conference accused the authority of harassing its members at various ports and market centres with some tax inspection.

The statement also indicated that the GRA raked in about ¢105,000 within two months through upfront payments with a corresponding increase in VAT registration.
