The GRA in April 2022 launched its voluntary e-invoicing platform for businesses to adopt electronic invoicing. E-VAT Portal to issue Electronic VAT invoices to customers will be piloted by 100 taxpayers.

Taxpayers report their sales invoices to obtain an electronic tax clearance certificate (e-TCC).  The e-TCC allowed taxpayers to generate their certificates online, thereby eliminating the human involvement that led to the faking of such certificates.

This is a part of tax digitisation programme, including cashless payments and online tax filings.

In the 2022 mid-term budget, the Finance Ministry confirmed e-VAT platform rollout.

The GRA has already introduced a platform for e-commerce and digital services portal which enables non-resident companies to pay taxes online as well as resident citizens.

Ghana also introduced VAT fiscal cash registers in 2018.
