The Ghana Single Window System
Ghana Single Window is a secure trade platform that facilitates the exchange of information between the Government of Ghana and the logistics community. Ghana Single Window was launched in 2002 and has been progressively updated and extended in line with international best practices. The platform reduces the need for data to be entered multiple times – instead it can be exchanged and re-used electronically, achieving faster, more accurate results and improving the ease of compliance with Government of Ghana requirements.
TradeNet permits the logistics community to exchange trade-related documentation electronically with all agencies involved in trade-related processes.
eTax allows taxpayers to register for a Tax Identification Number, manage their profile, submit tax returns online and make electronic payments to settle liabilities. A Tax Identification Number is required for all importers wishing to bring goods into Ghana.
eRegistrar allows investors to register their businesses online and pay associated fees electronically. During business registration, the new company is automatically issued with a Tax Identification Number- a requirement for all importers wishing to bring goods into Ghana.
Ghana Single Window is deployed and supported by Ghana Community Network Systems (GCNet) Limited. GCNet is a Public Private Partnership in which the Government of Ghana holds a 38% shareholding. It was incorporated in 2000 specifically for the purpose of developing Ghana Single Window and deploying systems for Ghana Customs.
