Shops across the country have closed as Traders begin a three-day strike to force government to address their grievances.

According to them, government has refused to review the high taxes which are collapsing their businesses.

The Ghana Union of Traders (GUTA) says the shops will be closed down from today, Monday, February 29 to Wednesday, March 2 2016.

GUTA recently enumerated some of the numerous taxes and levies that are charged at the ports.

These include import duty of between 10 and 20 percent, import VAT/NHIL – 17.5 percent, ECOWAS Levy – 0.5 percent, EDIFF – 0.5 percent, GCNet – 0.4 percent, GCNet VAT/NHIL 17.5 percent, Ghana Shippers’ Authority – GHS9, Income Tax in Imports – 1 percent, I.D.F (GHS5), Special Tax on Import – 2 percent, CUBAG – (GHS5) and CCVR – 1 percent.
