Frequently Asked Questions
The CTN certificate was binding for all shipments to Ghana since the Autumn of 2018. The accord came following a long battle between the trade association union and the Ghana Revenue Authority. Business owners have argued the CTN has created so much delay to their work. On the other hand, Customs authorities defended saying CTN has actually facilitated the quick clearance of goods through customs. Because the CTN certificate enables the Customs authorities to check and approve the shipment of goods whilst they are still at the port of origin. Whit all details at hand, the Customs offices don’t need much time assessing the good at arrival.
Although it is almost a year after the system has been implemented, the dispute from the opposing parties has not weakened. In fact, according to most recent reports, a group of businessmen has filed a legal challenge to stop the practicing of CTN. However, the Tema High Court has dismissed the request to terminate the CTN requirement and as of May 1019, the CTN certificate is still an official requirement by the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).
