The Ghana Community Network Services Limited (GCNet) has presented 150 Dell Laptops to the Ministry of Finance for use by the Domestic Tax Revenue Division (DTRD) of the Ghana Revenue Authority(GRA).
Executive Chairman of GCNet, Dr Nortey Omaboe said the donation was made in response to an identified need by the DTRD to become more flexible in the use of the Total Revenue Information Processing System (TRIPS) that GCNet has deployed for it.
He said whilst DTRD Officers have desktop computers installed for them at their various Tax Offices, their flexibility to undertake field operations are by the limited number of laptops presently available to them.
He added that this situation constrains their capacity to undertake tax audits efficiently.
GCNet has deployed the TRIPS system for the DTRD in sixty-eight (68) Tax Offices throughout the country. Mr. Nortey said the provision of these laptops will greatly optimize the use of the system adding that it will also help to ensure that the DTRD realizes its revenue target for 2018.
Dr Omaboe said Although 2017 was a remarkable revenue collection year for GRA (DTRD), the revenue target for 2018 makes it more imperative for it to redouble its efforts. Half-way through the year, it is noted that the GRA has to take effective measures during the second half year for this to be possible.
