"Time with the Managing Director" - The event, organised by the Bank’s local Union of Industry, Commerce and Finance Workers (UNICOF) of Ghana Trade Union Congress, was held under the theme: "ARB Apex Now and the ARB Apex in the Future". It was held as an interactive programme for the staff of the Bank to interact with the MD, who has been in office for barely eight months now, to share in his vision and deliberate on ways to return the Bank to profitability by the end of his term of office.
The ARB Apex Bank is the first local bank to issue a domestic card which employs Europay MasterCard Visa (EMV) standards with CHIP and PIN for transactions to facilitate payments on the Gh-Link platform, the Chief Executive Officer of GhIPSS Achie Hesse has stated.
A board member of Kwamanman Rural Bank Limited at Kwaman in the Ashanti Region, Mr. Newman Dapaah, has assured the new Managing Director of ARB Apex Bank Limited, Mr. Kojo Mattah, of support for him and his colleague directors to pursue his agenda of transforming rural and community banks as well as the ARB Apex Bank.
The ARB Apex Bank together with the over one hundred and forty rural and community banks across the country held its annual two-day managers conference in Ho, the capital of the Volta region at Volta Serene Hotel from 13th to 14th October, 2017 on the theme “MAKING GREATER IMPACT IN THE RURAL BANKING INDUSTRY THROUGH INNOVATION AND COLLABORATION FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH”.
Until September 1, 2015, when the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) announced the new Income Tax Act 2015, (Act 896), the Rural and Community Banks (RCBs) were paying eight percent tax on their annual income, which was increased to 25 percent.
