Here are the 45 companies the government wants to grant tax exemptions

The Minority in Parliament has served notice that they will resist an attempt by the government to give tax exemptions to some 45 companies presented to Parliament as One-District-One-Factory companies and Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) strategic investors.

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta

The Minority Leader in Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson said the NDC MPs will use all means to prevent the government from giving tax exemptions to said 45 companies.

According to him, the escalation in the sheer number of companies being presented to Parliament as candidates for tax exemption under the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government is frightening.

He said there are about 45 companies that have been presented to Parliament as one-district-one-factory companies, GIPC strategic investors, etc., to be exempted from the payment of taxes. In total, the government is asking Parliament to grant tax exemptions to the tune of US$449, 446,247.95 for these 45 companies. That is the equivalent of over five and a half (5.5) billion Ghana cedis.

He added that the Minority are serving notice that we shall resist these tax waiver applications fiercely! In their current forms, we shall resist each and every one of the tax waiver applications with all the tools and strategies at our disposal.
