Through its informants’ reward scheme, the Ghana Revenue Authority says it has recovered over $93 million and an additional GH421 million from multinational and local companies operating in the country.
It said these taxes were ones that the state could have lost due to the unwillingness to pay until the intervention of the informants who used the Informant Application system to draw the attention of the Authority.
The Acting Head of Intelligence at the Ghana Revenue Authority, Wisdom Xetor, said the scheme has disclosed that the scheme has yielded positive results.
“It is a scheme that is yielding results and many are providing information that is leading to the recovery of monies that would have been lost if this avenue was not provided for them to provide information to us about impropriety relating to tax.”
He also revealed that the informants had been compensated for their work.
