What the Tax Identification Number (TIN) is all About

Tax Identification Number (TIN) is a unique identification number issued to taxpayers for all official transactions. In Ghana currently, the government has given directives that every Ghanaian who is required to pay tax or could be paying tax in the near future, must get their own Tax Identification Number as it is going to be difficult in the times to come to get certain services and documents without the TIN. A TIN certificate is issued to the applicant after one has successfully applied and met all the requirements for the application.
