Caterer granted bail for defaulting in SSNIT payments

The Hohoe Magistrate Court has granted bail to Madam Tsigbe Doris Akos, Owner of Lorlornyo Catering Services, to the tune of GH¢5,000.00 with two sureties for defaulting in payment of Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contributions of workers.

The default pension contributions amounted to GH¢2,889.00, spanning November 2017 to April 2019.

Madam Akos who is also a Caterer, pleaded guilty and was convicted on her own plea to reappear on July 18, this year for sentencing.

Mr George Akuaku, Hohoe SSNIT Compliance Supervisor, presenting the facts of the case to the court, presided over by Mr. Peter Anongdare, said the accused person was the owner of Lorlornyo Catering Services in Hohoe.

He said the establishment was registered and covered by the Basic National Security Scheme under the National Pension Act 2008 (Act 766) as amended by Section 7 of the National Pensions (Amendment) Act 2014 (Act 883) and therefore, bonded to abide by the law.

Mr Akuaku said inspections conducted by SSNIT inspectors into the pay books of the establishment covering specified period revealed that the accused person had failed to pay contributions and penalties amounting to GH¢2,889.00.

He said a demand notice was served on the accused person and several attempts made for her to settle her indebtedness but she failed to do so.
