The calculation of taxes on salaries through the GRA Chart is not based on a predetermined fixed rate such as 16.5%, 18%, 15%, or 20%. Instead, it is determined by the income bracket within which your earnings fall. Refer to the GRA Chart below to ascertain the applicable tax rate corresponding to your income level.
Using the GRA CHART Below
|GHANA REVENUE AUTHORITY CHART 2023|
|YEAR 2023||RATE||RATE DIFFERENCE||CUMMULATIVE INCOME||TAX PAYABLE||CUMMULATIVE TAX|
So let us take the first taxable income in 1L which is Gh₵535.90
Based on the chart, this is how it is calculated.
The amount is greater than the first amount which is Gh₵402 so we do this (Gh₵535.90 — Gh₵402)(5%) = Gh₵1.195
Then, you realize that the taxable income is still greater than the next cumulative income Gh₵512 so we have (Gh₵535.90 — Gh₵512)(5%)=Gh₵6.695.
Then we move to the next cumulative income but you realize that the amount next which is Gh₵642 is greater than the taxable income so we end it there.
Now you will add up the two sums you had which is Gh₵1.195 + Gh₵6.695 = Gh₵7.89
Hope this maths is clear on how to calculate the tax on your income.
