The move is one of the topmost aims of the agency this year. A number of requirements needed for business registration are being cut to facilitate the move. The payment system of the department and that of the domestic tax unit of the GRA are being converged. The Ghana Community Network Services Limited (GCNet) is leading the automation drive. Its General Manager Alwin Hoegerle told Starr Business’s Osei Owusu Amankwaah that the the automation drive has been on since 2011 and will make it possible to conduct business online. “We have deployed for them a web portal. So you can actually conduct your business with RGD online, for example make your annual returns, you can clear whether your company name that you want is already taken or not taken; you can even pay your fees online.The aim of theses process is to ensure that with the entire necessary legal requirement available one can register his or her business within 24 hour. These processes are to eliminate the activities of middlemen who contributed to the cost of doing business”,He said.
