We handed over all transactional data to GRA – GCNet clears air on UNIPASS/ICUMS system

The Ghana Community Network Services Limited (GCNet) has denied reports that it did not provide historical transactional data of its port management to the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).

In a press release signed by Aba Lokko, the Corporate Communications Manager, she said all documents were submitted to the Authority in the Comma Separated Values (CSV) format.

“There is a trail of irrefutable evidence of confirmed receipt by GRA of all such data from GCNet/GCMS to this effect,” she said.

Madam Lokko added, “As part of the data submission to GRA, GCNet provided on two separate occasions the Column Names and Data Types.”

The Corporate Communication Manager said it is, “therefore totally false to suggest that GCNet did not hand over data to the GRA.”

  1. GCNet has handed over all data from the year 2002 to May 31, 2020, to the GRA in an appropriate format, which is transformable, manageable, acceptable and transportable to any relational database management system for consumption and use in accordance with international acceptable standards, i.e. Comma Separated Values (CSV) format.
