Vehicle Dealers Association of Ghana (VADAG) has called on government to take urgent steps to give full effect to the repeal of the Luxury vehicle levy.

According to them, although government has announced the cancellation of the levy, it is yet to be effected.

Last week, Parliament passed a bill to scrap the tax as part of the policy measures presented to the House by Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta in the Mid-Year Budget review but barely a week after, there are concerns from VADAG that the DVLA is still charging the levy despite the critical step taken by Parliament.

President of VADAG, Eric Boateng in an interview called for the intervention of the government especially the president to ensure that the repeal of the tax is given a full effect.

“As I speak, DVLA is still collecting the money from those using 3.0 and 3.5 liters. We are still looking at it and appealing to the top officials to honour their promise of withdrawing the luxury vehicle tax,” Eric Boateng said.
