Ghana Revenue Authority Ghana Revenue Authority

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) is set to use a newly Integrated Customs Management System (ICUMS) at the Tema Port.

In a statement dated April 27, 2020, the authority says the deployment takes effect from today, Tuesday, April 28, 2020.

It says effective today, all transactions in respect of import and export manifest can be processed through either ICUMS or the Ghana Customs Management System for the Port of Tema as well as all entry points.

An official statement issued by the GRA, and signed by its acting Commissioner-General, Mr Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, noted that all existing transactions that began processing prior to May 31, 2020, but have not been completed in the Ghana Customs Management System (GCMS) shall be reprocessed through the new Integrated Customs Management Systems (ICUMS).

This affects transactions that have been paid before or after duty, according to the statement.

“All transactions in respect of import/export manifest can be processed either Integrated Customs Management System (ICUMS) or Ghana Customs Management System (GCMS) for the Tema Port as well as all other entry points. For the avoidance of doubt, with effect from 1st June 2020, all new transactions without exception in respect of import and export shall only be processed through the ICUMS,” the statement added.
