The Abbosey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association is kicking against the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) compliance and invigilation exercise which the association sees it as intimidation and disrespect.

As part of measures put in place to express their anger, the Association is embarking on a demonstration and closing down of shops.

In a press release issued and signed by the Head of Communications, Mr. Takyi Addo, the Association disclosed that, members have always been law abiding citizens of Ghana living in peace and providing services to their fellow citizens therefore, they don’t see why GRA has to invite their officers to come and sit in their shops from morning till they close, just in the name of raising revenue for the government.

According to the Association, GRA office is now deploying various forms of intimidation, harassment and threat against them all in the name of raising tax.

 

Below is the full press statement :

It has come to the attention of the
leadership of Abbosey Okai spare parts dealers association and letters been circulated by GRA conducting a compliance and invigilation exercise.
Tomorrow, there is an intended demonstration and closing down of shops against GRA compliance and invigilation exercise which the association sees it as intimidation and disrespect.
Our members have always been law abiding citizens of Ghana living in peace and providing services to their fellow citizens so we don’t see the reason GRA has to invite their officers to come and sit in our shops from morning till we close just in the name of raising revenue for the government.
GRA office is now deploying various forms of intimidation, harassment and threat making in the name of raising tax.
Closure of shops tomorrow, every single shop will be closed down to send a signal to the government and GRA with their nuisance tax and revenue they have imposed on traders especially Abbosey Okai spare parts.
We call on all Ghanaians to speak out against this intimidation and harassment against traders and we demand proper review of tax policy, reduction of import duties, abolish certain taxes and levies on importation.
God bless motherland Ghana.
