GHANA: Deadline looming for governmental reporting

All employers utilising foreign nationals in Ghana must submit their annual report before 15 January 2018 or risk potential fines. If a fine is levied and then not paid within seven days then prosecution can follow.

Employers need to submit the names and addresses of all the foreign nationals - employed as of 1 January of the previous year – on a form provided by the government.

How does this affect the client?

Employers with foreign nationals in Ghana should submit the report as soon as possible. In the event that the reports are not submitted on time then employers should be aware of the possible financial repercussions. This applies not only to the employer but also to individuals within non-compliant companies.
