Improving tax policy and tax administration in Ghana

In 2010, a reform of civil service pay eliminated incentive contracts previously offered to tax collectors. This change is predicted to reduce tax collectors’ motivation and performance, but no evidence on the impact exists.

Based on consultations with the Ghana revenue Authority (GRA), IGC-Ghana is interested in proposals on tax related studies such as raising tax revenues and improving tax administration. Example: What has been the impact of incentives on the performance of tax officials at the GRA and how has the Single-Spine Salary Structure affected the ability of the GRA to attract high-quality tax officials?
