FBR issues uniform 17pc sales tax rates for petroleum products

ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Sunday issued uniformed sales tax rates for petroleum products effective from July 01, 2019.

To implement the sales tax rates for petroleum products from July 01, 2019 the FBR issued SRO 700(I)/2019 on Sunday.

In the earlier SRO 602(I)/2019 dated May 31, 2019, the FBR fixed the sales tax rate included: petrol 13 percent; high speed diesel oil, 13 percent; kerosene oil 17 percent; and light diesel oil at 17 percent.

The FBR sources said that the sales tax rates have been increased on the two major products including petrol and high speed diesel oil, which are main revenue spinner.

The FBR has been given Rs5,550 billion target for fiscal year 2019/2020, which is apparently an impossible target on the back of weak economic conditions and lower manufacturing output.
