CBOD petitions GRA over challenges associated with the Integrated Customs Management System (ICUMS)

The Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors (CBOD) has petitioned the Ghana Revenue Authority over some challenges Bulk Distribution Companies (BDCs) are experiencing with the Integrated Customs Management System (ICUMS), a system deployed by the GRA to replace GCNeT, the previous system that linked all players in clearing goods through the port.
While BDCs are appreciative of the training as regards using ICUMS and are in full support of the new system, it is bedeviled by some challenges; increase in potential demurrage exposure for BDCs and reduction in operational flexibility.

The CBOD has requested a meeting with the GRA to address the matter.
