FBR asked not to send notices for turnover tax

KARACHI: Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) has urged Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to issue necessary instructions to all RTOs to refrain from sending notices for demanding the unjust annual turnover Tax to members of Pakistan Yarn Merchants Association (PYMA) till the issue is resolved as the Annual Turnover Tax, which was 0.1 percent, was inadvertently being charged at 1.0 percent.
In a letter sent to Member (Inland Revenue-Policy) FBR, Dr. Hamid Ateeq Sarwar on Wednesday, President KCCI Junaid Esmail Makda referred to a meeting between KCCI delegation and FBR authorities held recently at FBR House in Islamabad in which this particular issue was also thoroughly discussed with Member IR-Policy and other officials who assured to resolve the same in due course but no correction has been done so far in SRO333 (1)/2011.
While reiterating that Inland Revenue-Policy department and RTOs should not issue further notices, he said that PYMA members have been receiving notices for Annual Turnover Tax which have to be suspended till the FBR makes necessary amendment.
