Stress free Steps to follow in order to Link your individual Tax Identification Number (TIN) to your Ghana Card have as part of aims of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) to widen the tax net in the country.

To ensure a smooth roll-out of this initiative, the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) together with the National Identification Authority (NIA) has instituted the following measures:

1. Registration officials of the National Identification Authority (NIA) are currently stationed at 14 GRA offices across the country to register individuals who do not possess a Ghana card. The Registration Officials will be at the following GRA/RGD offices:

  • TIN Centre, Registrar-General’s Department, Accra.
  • TIN Centre, Customs Long Room, Tema.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Spintex Road.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Adabraka.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre 1, Tema.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Koforidua.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Cape Coast.
  • Taxpayer Service centre, Takoradi.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Asokwa.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Sunyani.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Ho.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Bolgatanga.
  • Taxpayer Service Centre, Wa.

Registration officials of the National Identification Authority (NIA) will eventually be stationed at 63 other GRA locations to serve all taxpayers.

2. There will be a transition period from Thursday, April 1, 2021 to Friday, December 31, 2021 where both the TIN and Ghana Card PIN may be used simultaneously as the unique number for tax identification purposes. After this period, it is expected that all existing TINs will be replaced with the Ghana Card PIN.        

3. A Sell-Service portal has been made available on the GRA website (www.gra.gov.gh) for existing taxpayers who have registered and have been issued with Ghana card to link their Ghana card PIN to their TIN.

4. Any taxpayer with a Ghana card must present it at any GRA office to be registered as a taxpayer.

NOTE: For transactions such as the filing of returns, payment of taxes, clearing of goods, registering of businesses, the Ghana card PIN should be quoted on the documentation Application Forms.
