Ghanaian musician, Stonebwoy, has expressed his interest to aid in educating individuals in the creative space about paying taxes.
In an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, the DefJam Records signee mentioned that a lot more education is needed to get his colleagues in line with paying taxes.
He stressed that he personally agrees that paying taxes is very important for national development, however, bemoaned the process by which this can be possible with creatives.
“Everything is taxable if the government wants to tax it. But how we go feel okay paying the tax is also another thing. If we are not making real money from where you are taxing us as creatives then we can’t even pay the money.”
Stonebwoy says that he is available to work hand in hand with the Ghana Revenue Authority to educate creatives who don’t have ample information about paying taxes.
“With the creative side, we will need more education and help. I am available to offer my time and get to do business with GRA to be able to help conscientize and structure how this can be done.”
This conversation was on the heels of comments made by the Deputy Minister for Tourism, Mark Okraku-Mantey, who made a call on the government to focus on taxing online activities now that the electronic levy has been successfully passed.
According to him, SMEs cannot thrive because of huge financial obligations. But if the tax scope is spread to cover online businesses, the revenue would still trickle in but not from a few overburdened ones.
