“Export sector already had [tax related] exemptions and they still have it.” Chairman Federal Board of Revenue Shabbar Zaidi stressed on Monday
Speaking at a press conference, he said “it was our policy to not impose any new taxes” on the textile export.
Due to a series of complaints related to the registration of sales taxes, the head of FBR stated that the board of directors had now automated the system.
The FBR will progressively evolve towards a complete change in automation and reduce human participation in the system, said Zaidi. Talking about the large scale transfers and appointments of the FBR officials, Zaidi said it was done in accordance with the law.
“A new FBR will be the one, which will be created with automation,” he added.
Regarding the harassment of FBR officials, Zaidi warned that anyone involved in such an act should not remain on the board.
He boastfully mentioned the success of the recent amnesty scheme across the country.
“Pakistan is facing a historic current and trade deficit,” he pointed out while assuring that the Afghan transit trade and smuggling issue were being seriously addressed by the board.
