Effective Monday 25th March 2019, persons who seek to register their businesses will require a digital address code for the business before being able to complete the registration process. This is according to the Registrar Generals Department(RGD).
The Registrar General Jemima Oware, said the move is part of the government’s efforts to move Ghana up the World Bank’s ease of doing business rankings.
Speaking at a press conference, Mrs Oware said the integration of Ghana Post to other systems has already been done.
“The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), MMDA’s and Ghana Post systems are being integrated. To make us more effective the process should have been completed by April however our developers GCNET said they could only do it this weekend so the installation has always been done so we apologize to our customers who will be met with this new requirements this morning,” she said.
Mrs Oware added that all individuals must download the app to get an address before beginning their business registration.
She said, “effective today [Monday] no business can be registered all across the country until a digital address together with other information is provided for the Registrar’s office.”
According to her, the process has already taken off and some officers will be available to assist people who will be registering from today [Monday].
