I am not taxed when my shows don’t make profit in the UK – Diana Hamilton

Award-winning Gospel performer, Diana Hamilton, has voiced her discontent with Ghana's tax collection framework for occasions during an appearance on the United Showbiz on Saturday, February 10, 2024.

Hamilton highlighted her experience of organizing events both in the UK and Ghana, taking note of a huge divergence in how the two nations charge tax event organizers.

She mentioned that the tax system in the UK is very favorable and practical because she is only taxed on her profits and is not taxed if she runs a business at a loss.

I am privileged to host events in Ghana and the United Kingdom. Assuming I hold an occasion in the UK, all the monies gathered will go into my record. I make every one of my withdrawals, and toward the year's end, I get burdened on my benefits. Additionally, I am not taxed if I lose money.

Ghana, on the other hand, is not like that. She moaned about the inadequacy of authorities of the Ghana Income Authority (GRA) whom she expresses neglect to apply burdens appropriately.

"In any case, in Ghana, when I'm facilitating an occasion, the GRA authorities won't actually take a look at anything; all they do is stand at the entry and count the quantity of individuals entering the corridor and they charge you. Regardless of free tickets, as long as anybody enters the corridor, they will count everybody and expense you on that without thinking about the setting, cost of creation, what not."

Diana is calling for definitive measures to guarantee a more good and skilled duty framework in Ghana to save organizations.

"I've had the honor of doing both, and I want to believe that we investigate this and an answer will be found," she said.
