A communicator discloses his plan to bypass E-Levy
A post by social media Communicator of the National Democratic Congress Hanan Confidence Abdul on the controversial e-levy has gone viral on Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter.
The NDC Communicator with a verified Facebook profile page posted “How to protect your money from wicked #MoMoTax and MoMo charges” suggesting a remote cashout by sender of the momo to be withdrawn by the receiver standing with the Momo agent.
The post has been shared several times on whatsapp with whatsapp marking it as “forwarded several times” to show the extent of reach.https://t.me/news4updates
1. If you send GHC 600 to your mother’s MoMo number, you will be charged 1% ie GHC 6 by MTN then charged 1.5% ie GHC 7.50 by government. Then when she withdraws, she will be charged GHC 6. So on one transaction of 600, total deductions will be GHC13.50
2. Do this instead. Let her go to a MoMo vendor and mention your number to the vendor. Allow Cash Out wherever you are and give your ID number. The vendor initiates withdrawal and it comes to you for approval wherever you are. You approve. Your mother receives cash. This way you avoid MTN charges on transfer and you avoid the wicked #MoMoTaxhttps://t.me/news4updates
3. You only pay GHC 6 on GH 600 instead of 13.50 cedis.Source:https://myjoyghana.com/
