Customers who were in the middle of transactions were made to move out and the shop was locked.
A Deputy Commissioner of Operations in charge of the Domestic Tax Revenue Division, Kwasi Eghan, cautioned all businesses to comply with regulations.

The Ghana Revenue Authority has warned it will be closing down shops and supermarkets which refuse to comply with the Electronic Invoicing System.
