Managers of the East Legon branch of Max Mart shopping centre, the Community 25 branch of Palace shopping mall, and the Second Cup Coffee shop in Dzorwulu have been arrested for failing to comply with tax laws and avoiding the Electronic VAT Invoicing system.
Following their arrest, they were detained by the Ghana Revenue Authority.
Two foreigners and one Ghanaian make up the three managers.
The GRA claims that the arrested mall managers purposefully cheated the Electronic VAT Invoicing system by recording multiple sales of items under one unit.
According to the GRA’s directive, each unit of an item sold from the shop should generate a separate VAT invoice to account for taxes paid by customers.
