Fire on the mountain Vodafone Ghana averts office closure over GRA dispute

The crunch meeting between senior management  and the Ghana Revenue Authority averted what could have been a rather embarrassing situation of the closure of the headquarters and other offices belonging to the company.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Pulse.com.gh has gotten wind of information that officials of the Ghana Revenue Authority stormed the offices of Vodafone Ghana earlier today, to ascertain some allegedly questionable issues about the company's tax payments.

The source told pulse.com.gh that the tax officials stormed the company's  headquarters at Airport and the Spintex Takyi plaza office.

The crunch meeting between senior management  and the Ghana Revenue Authority averted what could have been a rather embarrassing situation of the closure of the headquarters and other offices belonging to the company.

Pulse.com.gh understands that there have been several meetings between the two parties to clear up what is described as "a miscommunication" between the Ministry of Finance and the GRA over the status of Vodafone's liabilities.

According to the source,the situation has arisen out of the failure of government, a 30% shareholder in the company to redeem investment obligations to the company.

Responding to Pulse.com.gh enquiries about the situation that led to the visit from the tax authorities, Vodafone Ghana said it was in no position to publicly declare its tax liabilities.

The telecom giant also indicated that it had honored its tax obligations and in the two years till   March 2014, it had paid over GHS630 million to the government and tax authorities.

"Vodafone continues to have discussions with Government (30% shareholder of the company) and the Ghana Revenue Authority on issues such as the position of its tax liabilities and current discussions are going well."
