GRA Denies Allegations of Bias in Staff Transfers

The Management of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has denied allegations of impropriety and unilateral decisions levelled against it in the transfer of staff of the Customs Division of the Authority.

A statement signed by Kwasi Bobie-Ansah, Acting Assistant Commissioner Communication & Public Affairs Department, on behalf of the Commissioner-General, said the transfers of staff of the Customs Division were done in accordance with GRA laid down processes and procedures.

“GRA Management wishes to make it clear that similar transfers have been done for both the Domestic Tax Revenue (DTRD) and Support Services Divisions (SSD) without any hitches or constraints whatsoever,” it said.

The statement said ‘the management of GRA believes in team work and therefore no member of the team takes unilateral decisions on staff matters.’

The statement urged staff to make use of internal mechanisms available for resolving staff grievances on such issues including staff movements or transfers.

Some officers of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), have registered their displeasure at their leadership for failing to transfer officers who have served more than 10years to other divisions of the service.

A custom officer who spoke on condition of anonymity explained that officers who have served less than 7 years are being transferred to other divisions of the service against the codes of the service, whiles many officers who have served in a single division for more than 10 years have still not been transferred.
