The head office of Internet service providers, Surfline, has been shut down by the debt management and tax compliance enforcement unit of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).
This follows a tax default of GH₵37.3 million from 2015 to 2017.
The entire head office has been cordoned off with the yellow bandages of GRA as both management and workers shut down their computers.
Earlier, the GRA also nearly shut the head office of telecom firm, Glo Ghana over a GH₵10 million tax default.
This was after a crunch meeting between officials of Glo and the debt management and tax compliance enforcement unit of Ghana Revenue Authority.
After hours in a closed-door meeting, Glo officials resolved to defray GH₵2 million of the overall debt.
Meanwhile workers there have packed out after an initial attempt by GRA officials to shut down the place.
