The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) was established by an Act of Parliament, Act 2009 (Act 791) merging the three revenue agencies that is the Customs, Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Value Added Tax Service (VATS) and the Revenue Agencies Governing Board (RAGB) Secretariat into a single Authority for the administration of taxes and customs duties in the country.

GRA has been established to:
•    Integrate Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Value Added Tax Service (VATS) into domestic tax operations on functional lines.
•     Integrate the management of Domestic Tax and Customs

•    Enhanced revenue mobilisation

GRA has three main divisions. They are:

2.    Domestic Tax Revenue Division (DTRD)
3.    Support Services Division (SSD)

The three-winged structure merges the management support services of Finance, Administration, Research of the erstwhile agencies under one Support Services Division. This leaves the Customs Division and the Domestic Tax Revenue Division free to focus entirely on revenue collection.

In fact, the rate of UB-40 activities in Ghana is too big, yet graduate are coming out of school and the jobs too are not there. Parents have wasted lots of money on education but no jobs.
