As part of a new collaboration on tax policy analysis and capacity building between the IFS, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and Ghana Ministry of Finance (MOF), Mr Charles Addae (the Assistant Commissioner for Tax Analysis and Revenue Forecasting at the GRA), Mr Seth Akuffo (Reseacher at the Tax Policy Unit, MOF) and colleagues visited the IFS. During this visit they met with IFS researchers, who explained the types of tax policy research and analysis we undertake, and the importance of high quality administrative and survey data for this work.
They also discussed the next steps in taking forward a joint programme of analysis of key tax policy issues facing Ghana, building on earlier discussions in Ghana in April. It is hoped the first projects, funded by the Department for International Development as part of the new IFS TAXDEV initiative, will start later this summer.
