More than 200 Department of Information Services staff across the country are undergoing special training in Kumasi to help scale up public education on Electronic Transfer Levy (E-Levy) implementation.
This is part of the measures taken by the Ghana Revenue Authority and the Ministry of Finance to dispel misconceptions about electronic direct debit and its implementation.
Deputy Information Minister Fatimatu Abubakar is confident that ISD will use the various local languages to properly disseminate the right information and dispel misconceptions about electronic levy.
The adoption and implementation of the electronic transfer tax has generated various concerns and misinformation.
This has forced authorities to hire Department of Information Services officers across the country to help with education.
Deputy Finance Minister Abena Osei Asare said it was crucial for ISD to employ the different local languages to better tackle misinformation about wire direct debit.
Concerns were expressed about the logistical constraints often associated with the work of the Department of Information Services.
Fatimatu Abubakar insists that the Department is well enough equipped to deliver education.
The initiative should empower the Department of Information Services on electronic direct debit mechanisms.
