E-levy Charges On GHS100 Transactions; This Is Naked Thievery – Sammy Gyamfi



The National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has accused the government of engaging in thievery after alleging that e-levy is charged on the first ¢100 sent, contrary to the e-levy Act.

He described the situation as bizarre and pathetic.

The implementation of the 1.5% Electronic Transfer Levy (E-Levy) started on Sunday, 1 May 2022.

The government had indicated that no matter the amount a person sends on mobile money, the first GH¢100 will not be affected by the levy.

But addressing a press conference in Accra on Wednesday August 3, he said “Even more bizarre and pathetic is the fact that the counter productive e-levy is sometimes charged on the first ¢100 sent by some Ghanaians to their loved ones in a day despite same being exempted under the e-levy Act.

“This is naked thievery being perpetuated by the Akufo-Addo government against already impoverished tax payers.”
