Background

The signing took place in Ghana between Minister of State for Trade and Industry Dr. Koh Poh Koon and Ghana’s Minister for Finance Ken Ofori-Atta.

The existing taxes to which this Agreement shall apply are the income tax in both countries.

The DTA arranges that a building site, construction, assembly or installation project or supervisory activities in connection therewith constitute a permanent establishment only if such site, project or activities lasts more than 6 months.

Interest and Royalties
