The Electronic Money Issuers (EMIs) in Ghana have served notice that all agent accounts that are not linked to Ghana Cards or Tax Identification Numbers (TIN) by 31st January, will be blocked on the 1st of February 2024.

According to the EMIs, the decision follows multiple extensive engagements with the leadership of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) on the linking of all agent accounts with the Ghana Card or TIN.

The GRA had ‘magnanimously’ given all EMIs up to January 31, 2024, to work with the agents to ensure they complete the linking process.

A press release issued by the EMIs said as a last call-to-action to the agents, they must regularise their operations through the linking of their accounts with their Ghana Cards or TIN if they haven't already done so, and that failure to do.

“In the unfortunate circumstances where an agent's account is suspended on February 1, 2024, they may visit any of the operator outlets with their Ghana Card or TIN to complete the process.

“We understand the importance of mobile financial services in facilitating financial inclusion and economic growth in the country. We therefore remain committed to taking the needed steps to deliver convenient, secure, and accessible financial services to all Ghanaians,” the press release said.
