The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has announced plans to introduce a new digitised revenue collection system in March later this year.
The new system is being implemented to improve on collection of revenue for the Assembly.
Mayor of Accra, Hon Elizabeth Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey made the announcement on Thursday, January 26th when she led a team of officers from the Assembly to sensitise traders on the roll-out of new receipts for payment of markets and lorry park tolls in the metropolis.
The new receipts to be issued on Friday 27th January 2023 have holograms in them for easy identification of which tickets were purchased.
The mayor stated that about 23 banks have been integrated into the new revenue collection platform to give users the flexibility of payment options adding that “apart from using the banks, ratepayers can equally pay their bills via mobile money on all networks, QR codes, and a USSD code.”
She noted that prior to the introduction of the new revenue collection system in March all traders and market women in the metropolis would be registered and given special Quick Response (QR) codes to be used for payment of bills from the Assembly.
