According to him, GRA is confident of the safety of data, hence have put in place fire recovery plans.

"As far as our data is concerned, we are confident that we have our system where the main server sits somewhere and the backup sits somewhere, so data will not be lost," he explained.

Mr. Owusu Amoah addressing the media also announced to the public that though the burnt building housed about 280 staff from the large taxpayer office as well as the medium taxpayer office of Adabraka, the inferno will not affect business operations.

"As GRA we have our own contingency and fire recovery plan in place. What we have in place is that by tomorrow morning the staff for the large taxpayer office will be relocating to our office at the head office building and particular to where we refer to Kinbu office is also an annex for the large taxpayer office.

And so all taxpayers who require transact or do any business with us are encouraged to that from our head office near the stadium at the Kinbu office.

We have made provisions to ensure that our staff who are located in this building will be available there to attend to them," he noted

He added that "for those taxpayers who are part of the medium taxpayer for Adabraka, we have made arrangements for them to be served at the Adabraka small taxpayer office.

The Adabraka small taxpayer office is located near the Adabraka Police Station and therefore the staff who are responsible will be there to serve them."

He urged the public to visit any of the aforementioned places to transact business.
