Tax rates on unregistered new cars during 2021-2022

In order to stop the ‘on money’ phenomenon, the government has slapped withholding tax on unregistered new motor cars or cars sold prior to first registration.

Through the Finance Act, 2021 the tax rates have been imposed for the year 2021/2022 and onwards. Initially, these rates were imposed through the Tax Laws (Amendment) Ordinance, 2021 for a period of 90 days.

The  Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) collects the withholding tax under Section 231B (2A) of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001.

Every motor vehicle registration authority of Excise and Taxation Department shall, at the time of registration, collect tax at the rates specified in Division VII of Part IV of the First Schedule, if the locally manufactured motor vehicle has been sold prior to registration by the person who originally purchased it from the local manufacturer.

The provincial excise and taxation authorities collect tax on behalf of the FBR from persons getting new locally manufactured motor vehicles transferred in their name at the time of registration of the new motor vehicles.
