of the Ghana Revenue Authority on exceeding its revenue target for 2019.

a vindication of GUTA’s position that if taxes were made affordable, it would
ensure compliance,

community, the Associations would continue to give out its best in honouring
tax obligations, and entreated all to live up to expectation in terms of tax
responsibilities.
