Churches in Ghana must pay tax – supreme court



Churches in Ghana must pay tax – supreme court 

The Supreme Court candidate, Justice George Kingsley Koomson, has stated that churches in Ghana that engage in “normal commercial activities” are required to pay taxes.

Churches (charitable faith-based organizations) are excluded from paying income taxes on their main operations in Ghana since they are established as limited corporations by guarantee, which implies that they are not registered to engage in operations with the intention of producing profits.

Justice Koomson stated, “The rules must be looked at again to compel churches that transition from their main activities to profit-making corporations to pay taxes,” in a presentation to the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Tuesday, October 18, 2022.

The Appeal Court Justice stated that it was important to examine our legislation. If charitable contributions are exempt from taxation under the law, that is where we should start.

“Why not expect churches that engage in economic activity to pay taxes if we can enforce our laws against them? The truth is that we use these taxes to fund national development. Allowing charity to pay taxes or not pay taxes is not, in my opinion, a negative practice. I believe I’ll support it if the laws can be examined to determine that it is necessary for religious institutions to do so, Justice Koomson stated.
