- The GRA is cracking down on business that are failing to pay their taxes
- The Accra-based TV station was off air for some time while management settled their debt
Accra-based TV station, Metro TV, has managed to mobilise the necessary funds to clear their existing debt with the Ghana Revenue Authority.
The station which was recently acquired by the Jospong Group of Companies, was shut down on Tuesday by some GRA executives, for failing to pay their outstanding taxes.
According to a Starrfmonline.com report, the new management of Metro TV had not been informed of the existing tax liabilities with the GRA by the previous management.
However, the station is now reportedly up and running again, following the closure of the office earlier and the staff being blocked from entering.
A few days ago, the GRA shut down one of the capital’s busiest retail centers, the Accra Mall, for failing to pay their taxes which amounted to about GHC 2.3 million.
The management of the mall however, quickly paid the amount due, after some GRA officials stormed the mall to close it down.
The activities form part of the GRA’s mission to crack down on business and other entities that are falling behind on their taxes.
