The Various District and Municipality assemblies have been mandated to levy Immovable property owners for a period of time through a portal known as myassembly.gov.gh.
The Portal will be used to make payment of property rate, these Including shops, Houses, Industries and Business Centers.
Indirectly, the Development will shoot up cost of renting shops, houses, business centres and also increase Prices of goods and services.
According to the Property Rate Committee, Business Operating Permit and Property Rate are two different entities. Property Rate is a bill levied on your immovable properties/structures while Business Operating Permit is license that permits you to undertake business within an assembly.
So obtaining a business license for your business and settling its dues does not mean you have also settled your Property Rate for your Commercial Properties.
Property Rate payments are made through the myassembly.gov.gh platform.
