Analyst Predicts An Increase In Cheque Transactions Due To E-levy
In a previous article written by YEN.com.gh an analyst predicts a switch towards cheque transactions by Ghanaians.
A financial analyst has predicted an increase in cheque transactions among Ghanaians and businesses and a dip in mobile money transactions in response to the E-Levy passage.
Executive Director, Center for Economics, Finance and Inequality Studies (CEFIS), Dr Benjamin Amoah, has said that because cheque transactions attract no taxes, "tax-sensitive" Ghanaians will move away from mobile transactions that attract a 1.5% levy.
