The Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Ghana, Patricia Obo-Nai has revealed that her company will from November 26 stop the upfront deduction of Communication Service Tax (CST) from airtime top-up.
She stated that customers will receive the exact amount of airtime they purchase, unlike how their top-up balance currently reflects a deduction of the CST.
“In the past when you recharge ¢1, I will take ¢0.70 pesewas and give it to government,” she said in a recent interview.
Some few days ago, the Communications Ministry made Ghanaians privy to their willingness to punish Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) for defying directives in reference to Communications Services Tax (CST). This was in a bid to stop telecommunications companies from giving their customers less airtime than they purchased.
