The acting Chairman of the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association, Mr Clement Boateng, has said, Prices of vehicle spare parts on the market will soon be reduced between 10 % and 15 % to make automobile users heave a sigh of relief.
He said, was as a result of the implementation of a new guideline which allowed auto part dealers to provide their own values and prices at which goods are bought and imported into the country.
It was designed by the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and dealers who are represented by Abossey Okai (Accra) and Suame Magazine (Kumasi) Spare Parts Dealers associations.
In an interview with the Daily Graphic in Accra, Mr Boateng observed that the dealers had been made to understand that the new guidelines would be used as a guide for the valuation of all imported auto spare parts.
However, he noted that customs was obliged to use any authentic invoice that might be brought to it because the document developed by the two parties would serve as a guide.
In this regard, he urged members of the association to always try as much as possible to provide it with authentic invoices from their suppliers.
After the document was designed, subsequent durbars were held for the Commissioner of customs, Mr Isaac Crentsil, to explain the issues to automobile dealers in Accra and Kumasi.
