Govt Rolling Out Platform For Property Taxation

The vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has announced a Platform for property taxation in Ghana.

The platform by the name Unified Digital Platform is being rolled out by the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and the Municipal and District Assemblies, he said.

Taxes under this include ground rate, property rate, business operating permit, rent and investment.

He said the platform will help tackle the problem of property rate collection and enable property owners to verify their property rates, make payments and receive receipts.

“Also, the GRA and MMDAs can see, in real-time, which properties have or have not paid their property taxes. This unified digital platform will significantly increase property rate collection and revenues”, he said.

In Ghana, veep said, only about 9% of properties in Ghana pay property taxes due to the lack of a database on properties.

But with this new platform, Dr Bawumia said, the list and details of over 7 million properties are uniquely identified by their addresses.

The Unified Property Rate Platform can be accessed at www.myassembly.gov.gh.

“My thanks to the Ministers for Finance, Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Lands and Natural Resources, the Commissioner General of the Ghana Revenue Authority and other stakeholders who worked closely and tirelessly with my office to bring this major project to completion”, he said in a Facebook post.
