E/R: TV set repairers & retailers kick against TV License fee

Television set repairers and retailers in Koforidua, the Eastern Regional Capital have kicked against the controversial TV License fees being implemented.

According to them, the Policy was ill thought through due to inadequate consultation adding that if forced on them it will cripple their businesses.

According to them, already they are paying varied taxes to Ghana Revenue Authority and other levies to the New Juaben assembly in addition to port duties when they import goods and TV parts.

They are therefore calling on the government to reduce the TV License fees saying as it stands now, it is nuisance to business and domestic users.

Per the Policy, TV set repairers are expected to pay GHC60 per annum per shop own, while TV set retail dealers shall pay GHC240 annually.
