VAT Registration Process 2020/2021 | How To Get VAT

How To Register for VAT 2020 / 2021 – gra.gov.gh

Value Added Tax (VAT) – the basics

What is VAT?

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a tax that is charged or paid when you buy goods or services. It is charged at various stages, for example when goods are manufactured, distributed or imported into the country. Only businesses registered to charge VAT are allowed to charge the tax.

Register for VAT

To be registered for VAT your business must be within the acceptable VAT threshold.  You must also:

  • have a permanent place of business
  • deal in taxable goods

How to register for VAT

To register for VAT, you must:

A VAT certificate will be generated. This must be clearly displayed at your business premises. You will also need to buy VAT invoices to issue to your taxpayers.

Documents you need for VAT registration

Sole proprietors – Certificate of Business Registration

Companies – Certificate of Incorporation of Business, Certificate of commencement of business

Partnerships – Certificate of Partnership

VAT thresholds

You need to register to charge VAT if you are a retailer and your taxable supplies within a 12-month period is GH¢200,000 or more.

You may also register to charge VAT if the amount is below GH¢200,000. However you must stay registered for at least 2 years.

Certain groups of people will need to register even if their business worth is less than or below GH¢200,000. These are:

  • promoters of public entertainment,
  • auctioneers
  • national, regional, local or other authorities or bodies

Where to register for VAT

VAT registration can be done in any Domestic Tax Revenue Division office nationwide.

Is VAT registration free?

It costs nothing to register for VAT.

What happens if you do not register for VAT

If you should register for VAT but do not do so, the Commissioner-General will register you compulsorily. In addition you will pay a penalty of up to two (2) times the amount of tax due from the time you should have registered.

Charging VAT

Once you are registered for VAT you must charge for very sale made or service rendered unless the person you are selling to has VAT Relief or the item or service is classified as Exempt. Only persons or businesses that have been registered for VAT can charge VAT.  A VAT invoice or an approved computer-generated invoice must be issued for each transaction. All transactions are to be recorded in a VAT Account.

VAT invoice

A VAT invoice is the approved invoice produced by the Ghana Revenue Authority. It is the official receipt that has to be issued by the registered taxpayer for taxable sales and services. Some businesses are allowed by the Commissioner-General to issue their own computer- generated invoices and till receipts to their clients.

Rates of VAT

Standard Rate- 12.5 %

VAT Flat Rate – 3%

Zero Rate – 0%

VAT Exemptions

Goods and services that do not attract VAT are called exempt goods and services. For a full list of exempt goods and services please click on this link.

What is Input Tax?

Many of the things bought by registered businesses are subject to VAT.  However, a VAT registered trader can usually get back the VAT charged on business purchases and expenses.  This is called Input Tax.  It includes not only the VAT on raw materials or on goods bought for resale but also the VAT on items and services like:

  • Office equipment for use in the business
  • Telephone bills (in so far as they are for calls used for the business purposes).
  • Payments for services to other businesses (such as accountants’ or solicitors’ fees).

Output Tax

Output Tax is the VAT that you, as a VAT registered taxpayer, charge your customers when you sell goods or services to them.

Calculating VAT due

The VAT system allows businesses to deduct the VAT paid on purchases (Input Tax) from the VAT charged on sales (Output Tax).  It is only the difference that is paid to the Ghana Revenue Authority.

Output Tax less Input Tax  = Payment due

Since businesses are allowed to make this deduction (i.e. take a credit for the Input Tax) it is not necessary to add the Input Tax to other costs in pricing the final product.  When the input tax is added to other costs, the tax would then be charged on the cost plus input tax, instead of a tax on value added only, thereby unnecessarily increasing the final price of the product.

In some cases, the Input Tax may exceed the Output Tax.  The trader can carry the credit forward or apply for a refund provided the required conditions are met.

Should you charge VAT on every sale or service?

You must charge VAT on every sale made or service rendered. All persons who buy goods you sell or enjoy services you render must pay VAT unless they are exempted from doing so.

VAT Flat Rate Scheme (VFRS)

Interviews Started: Recruitment Of Nurses To Barbados | Nana Addo Project

Recruitment Of Nurses To Barbados | Job Vacancy | Request For Applications

A team from Barbados has begun interviewing some specialized nurses for recruitment to health institutions in that country on a two-year work contract.

A total of 598 health professionals with a minimum work experience of three to five years, applied in the job recruitment exercise when the Ministry of Health (MoH) opened its portal from November 5 to 7, 2019.

Out of the 598 who applied, 150 were shortlisted out of whom 120 will finally be recruited by the Barbados team to start a two-year contract in that country.

The positions to be filled include eight emergency room nurses, six peri-operative nurses, three ophthalmic nurses, 70 registered nurses, 21 critical care nurses, and 12 cardiac catheterization nurses.

This will be the first time the country will formally export the services of nurses on a bilateral basis.

The recruitment exercise became necessary after the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mr Mia Amor Motley, during bilateral discussions, made a formal request to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for Ghana to send specialised nurses to the Caribbean nation to work in a number of their government medical facilities to address the acute shortage of skilled health caregivers.

The Public Relations Officer of the MOH, Mr. Elorm Ametepe, who confirmed that a team from Barbados was in the country to conduct the interview said the various supervisory agencies had been notified about the exercise.

A letter dated October 31, 2019, from the MOH was copied to the Nurses and Midwifery Council (NMC), the various teaching hospitals in the country, the Ghana Health Service, the Mental Health Authority, the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG), health training institutions and other stakeholders.

120 Nurses To Be Recruited

Mr Ametepe gave an assurance that the country had a lot of surplus of these critical healthcare nurses and therefore exporting them to Barbados was the best option.

He said after the two years, the nurses were expected to come back to their workplaces while another set would also be given the opportunity to go and work in that country.

The Agreement

The decision to export Ghanaian nurses to Barbados is in line with an agreement reached between the Ghana government and its counterpart in Barbados in June this year when President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo toured the Caribbean.

The Barbadian Prime Minister had told President Nana Akufo-Addo that his country was searching for 400 nurses, to which Ghana was reported to have agreed to offer 375 to the Caribbean nation which is said to be in shortage of skilled caregivers.

“We have a surplus of nurses in Ghana, and placing them all in our public health system is one of my headaches. There have been a lot of nurses produced, which, for several years, we have not been able to do anything with,” Nana Akufo-Addo told the Prime Minister. Share on:

NABTAG Statement On NSTA, NABCO App And Young Professional Program

*NABCO TRAINEES ASSOCIATION OF GHANA – NABTAG*

For immediate release…. ✍🏻✍🏻

Dear Trainees,

*RE: NABCO SKILLS AND TALENT ACADEMY, NABCO APP AND YPP*

===========================
Following the messages dispatched from NABCO concerning the NABCO SKILLS AND TALENT ACADEMY, NABCO APP, AND YOUNG PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM, let’s all take note of the details as clarified below:

*1. Nabco Skills And Talent Academy (NSTA:*

The NABCO Skills and Talent Academy was launched by the president during the one year anniversary, held on 17th October 2019. The portal for the online course was activated and subsequent arrangements were provisioned instructing the various NABCO District Coordinators to provide guidance training on how to approach the registration of the NSTA. The guidance training was successfully completed; trainees were directed to create a new Gmail account purposefully for the NSTA, which *NABTAG* believes most trainees have created their credentials for the course.

The messages dispatched from NABCO regarding the NSTA is notifying trainees on the activation of the portal for the commencement of the online training. Trainees are expected to login to the portal via http://academy.nabco.gov.gh/ with their credentials (being your NABCO number and password used for the Gmail account set-up), and register for their preferred courses.
*Note:* Before you can register, you have to select a preferred course and click on REGISTER to start the process.

*NABCO SKILLS AND TALENT ACADEMY STEPS*

Congratulations Nation Builder!!!

*2. NABCO MOBILE APP/CLOCK IN CLOCK OUT:*

The NABCO APP was built earlier but needed to undergo further bug fixing. The tech team has been able to complete that, so the APP has been activated for the purposes of clocking in and clocking out; as well as future updates which will be communicated as and when necessary. Validation of monthly allowances will be based on the clocking in and clocking out together with the timesheet and NSTA. *NABTAG wishes to inform all trainees to comply with the directives to enjoy great opportunities ahead.*
Turn on the location on ur phone whenever u are clocking in or out

*Note:* Clocking in and out must be done at the respective organizations of work, as the digital address will be transmitted to HQ for cross-checking. Trainees with internet connectivity challenges should report to their respective District Coordinators and RTCs for further directives. Download and install this application from the playstore (Android and Apple version available depending on the type of device).These measures intended to expedite the payment process.
*You are to start using the app and it will among other things be used to validate you for November and subsequent months stipends and not October.*

*_Validation of monthly stipends will be dependent on the NSTA progress report, NABCO MOBILE APP, and TIMESHEET._*

👉🏻 For further directives, kindly contact your District Coordinators and RTCs.

*3. YOUNG PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM:*

The last touch will be on the YPP, which is basically a Banking related professional program for those with Masters credentials and three-year experience in the Banking Sector. It’s not compulsory for all trainees.

Let’s do well to comply with the directives to avert any possible repercussion in the future.

NABCO is here to stay, so let’s support it.

Validation of arrears are still ongoing, so payments will be done extensively soon after which October allowance will follow.
We thank you all for your patience.

🇬🇭 *ALL CONCERNS SURROUNDING THESE APPLICATIONS ARE NOTED AND BEING WORKED ON FOR EASY ACCESSIBILITY*🇬🇭 *NO FEARS & PANIC*🤝🏻
