GRA Fails To Account For The Sales Of 1,719 Vehicles-Losses GHC25.5m


An amount of GHC25.5 million remains missing after the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) failed to account for the sale of some 1,719 vehicles.

This was contained in a 2018 report by the office of the Auditor-General, in which he disclosed how 1,719 vehicles out of 2,388 were unaccounted for between 2015 and 2017 after auctioning by the GRA.

Speaking to the media, Deputy Auditor-General in charge of Central Government Audit Department, George Swanzy Winful stated that his outfit, after sampling 2,388 vehicles, found out that monies for 1,719 vehicles out of the lot could not be accounted for by the GRA.

Raising concerns, Swanzy Winful said during the examination of records supporting the revenue of about GHC8.8m in connection with 669 vehicles auctioned, GRA failed to provide them with the relevant documents which made their work difficult as they were unable to ascertain the reliability and appropriateness of the auction procedures followed in realising the revenue.

Per the report, GRA’s Schedule Officer, Kwesi Asante had reacted to the claims, explaining that “some of the unaccounted for vehicles were given to their owners as the first offer since higher revenue would be generated than when auctioned and also some of the chassis numbers gazetted were wrongly captured”.
