A total of 69 bids have been made  on seven vehicles advertised on the platform.

Speaking at a ceremony to launch the GRA Service Charter recently, the Commissioner-General of the GRA, Rev Amisshadai Owusu Amoah explained the seamless process of going online to make bids unlike achieving this in-person in the past.

He also added that this will prevent colossal amounts of revenue going down the drain as it was with the previous system.

We’re working to improve our services through various online and technology platforms such that customers will feel comfortable dealing with us, the Commissioner-General said.

We have the E-VAT, E-invoicing and other innovative means by which customers are able to pay taxes and avoid some alleged corruption in our various offices. Another initiative is that by the end of October, we want to begin an E-Auction at the ports so that if you want to buy a car, just be home and click to search ( for the kind of car you want without coming to the port.

Payments are expected to be made by customers right after their bids are electronically approved.

This is obviously a commendable initiative by the Authority in this era of digital dispensation.
