Ghana Card and TIN required for registration of new companies – Registrar General

The Registrar General’s Department (RGD) says effective Thursday 1 April 2021 all clients registering new companies should provide both their Ghana Card and the Tax Identification Number (TIN) for the process.

A statement signed by Jemima Oware, the Registrar General said, “This measure has become necessary following the president’s 2021 State of the Nation Address in Parliament in which he indicated that all National Identification Numbers would become Tax Identification Number (TIN) and SSNIT numbers.

“…Clients are to note that business registration forms would not be processed without the National Identification Number (Ghana Card),” the statement added.

The statement said the directive applied to all registration types, namely; companies limited by shares and by guarantee, unlimited liability companies, partnerships, sole proprietorships, subsidiary business names and external companies.
