During the presentation of the 2022 Budget Statement to Parliament, the Minister of Finance announced the introduction of an “Electronic Transaction Levy” of 1.75% on electronic transactions above GHC 100.
This announcement stirred different reactions from teachers and members of the Ghana Education Service (GES). Although the introduction of this tax is a way to generate public revenue to help mitigate the monetary deficits being faced by the country, the increased charges on digital money transfers may reduce the disposable income available to teachers.
In an interview with Afia Gyamera, the Head of Marketing at Zuberi, she mentioned that teachers who transfer money with the Zuberi app will not bear the cost of the E-levy charges. The startup will temporarily absorb the cost of E-levy charges for an extended period of time as part of its mission to improve the financial wellness of teachers in Ghana. She advised all teachers in Ghana to take advantage of this opportunity to save money for future projects.
