Management of Accra Mall has settled the 2.3million tax owed the state after refusing to do so since September this year.
The move follows the incident that saw officials of the Ghana Revenue Authority storming the premises of the Mall to shut it down Wednesday morning.
The Chief Revenue Officer leading the taskforce Wisdom Kofi Heto in a media briefing said the GRA notified the management of the mall since September of their indebtedness to the state, however they have declined to make payment.
Kasapa FM’s Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman who is following the GRA team reports from the scene that management of the mall is currently in a crunch meeting over the development and are likely to issue out cheques to clear the debt.
