7 min read

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has reminded that the Tax Identification Number (TIN) is a prerequisite for the registration of vehicles.

This latest announcement was part of the DVLA’s communique on its shift to an electronic platform for registration in January 2019.

A statement issued by the DVLA and signed by its Public Relations Manager, Francis Asamoah Tuffour, said the move is to “ensure that the time spent at the DVLA office is reduced drastically to prevent overcrowding”.

As a result, individuals who want their vehicles registered next year are to from Monday, December 3 to 2018 begin the pre-registration process pending payment on January 2, 2019.

In the bigger picture, this will be viewed as the latest step by the Akufo-Addo administration to formalize the economy and ensure tax compliance because the TIN has now become a mandatory component of vehicle registration.

All employed Ghanaians must acquire a TIN to fulfill the Revenue Administration Act (RAA), 2016, Act 915.

The TIN is a prerequisite for passports, opening of bank accounts and other essential services in Ghana.
