KARACHI: Sindh Revenue Board (SRB) has suspended sales tax registration of two goods transport companies for defaulting payment and non-compliance of monthly returns, officials said on Friday.
The SRB suspended sales tax registration of M/s. Sheikh Zahoor Goods and M/s. New Darwesh Goods Transport for violating provincial tax laws.
The SRB suspended registration of Sheikh Zahoor Goods for filing to file monthly Sindh Sales Tax returns for the consecutive seven tax periods from August 2018 to February 2019, despite issuance of notices on January 04, 2019, January 25, 2019 and March 13, 2019.
Furthermore, it is observed that the company had received revenue consideration of Rs72.05 million during the tax period from January 2018 to February 2019 but the taxpayer declared the sales of Rs16.89 million during the tax periods leading to short declaration of sales Rs55.15 million.
The SRB directed the company to take remedial action by April 04, 2019 for paying dues along with surcharges and e-file true and correct monthly sales tax returns.
In the case of New Darwesh Goods Transport Company, the SRB said that the taxpayer had failed to declare any sales during the tax period from March 2018 to February 2019, despite the fact that it had received consideration of Rs13.66 million during January 2018 up to December 2018, which revealed short declaration of sales by it.
The SRB had directed the company to submit a copy of income tax return of tax year 2017/2018 along with summary list of invoices in order to ascertain their Sindh sales tax dues, but it failed to make compliance.
The SRB asked the company to take remedial action by April 04, 2019 of paying outstanding dues along with default surcharge and e-file true and correct monthly sales tax returns.
The provincial revenue authority warned both the companies that if they failed to take remedial actions then the SRB would take necessary action under the law.
